Looking for pictures of tastefully done Ranch house additions
We're toying with the idea of having a second story and porch added to our ranch house. Right now it's a traditional brick ranch, approx. 30ft x 80ft built in the 1950's.
We don't know much about architecture, but most of the second story additions we've seen are out of character with ranch style-- like a 2nd floor was just dropped in place.
We're not ready to consult an architect yet, but we do want to dream a bit and get some ideas. If anyone has pointers to nicely done ranch additions, or even ones that didn't turn out so well, please post them here.
We looked at some idea books but it seems like ranch houses are the ugly stepchild. They all start out with romantic farmhouses, huge barns, classic colonials, ultramodern... but hardly ever a ranch.
