Obviously, if you are looking to build a two-story plan, it is best to search for a two-story plan. This also goes for a ranch plan. But, sometimes the perfect ranch plan is found as the main floor of a two story design.
Our encouragement to you, especially when looking to build a two-story, is to also search for the prefect ranch plan, then let us put a second floor on it for you. Still targeting the overall style you desire.
These pictures show the ranch design we started from and the two- story our client drove us to.
