Recommends it for: anyone looking to remodel a ranch style house.
Shelves: architecture
Written by architects. Floor plans included on the fairly detailed case studies, which is always a plus. Gives me hope for the ranch style. True ranch style has some modern aesthetics and connection to the backyard that I can really appreciate.

I also enjoy how this book shows that ranch style can be a bit of a blank slate, and you can remodel it into other styles as well. Now I'm going to read their book on updating Bungalows.

Well put together collection of suggestions for ranch style home oweners who want to go 21st century. But not my thing. Try as I might, most modern design leaves me cold. Really cold.

Not bad, but not especially good either. Has some okay ideas, but it's all very standard.
