A fun-loving and practical book that showcases the virtues of the ubiquitous ranch houses that sprang up across the country following World War II. These houses - now popular again among renovators and preservationists - range from the decidedly modern gable-roofed Eichler tracts in the San Francisco area and butterfly wing houses to the unassuming brick or stucco L-shaped ranches and split-levels so common throughout the United States --even an aluminum kit home! It features the exceptional interiors of eight houses (1946-1970), discusses successes and challenges of upgrading them, and shows how to live stylishly. Tips are shared on color, flooring, window coverings, furniture arrangements, and how off-the-shelf components can be turned into custom features. The homeowners’ stories explain why these rooms work, and provide you with resources and ideas for everything from garage doors to the art on the wall. An in-depth exploration of midcentury residential architecture in America.
