Our Top 5 Timber Frame Ranch Homes Made for Single-Story Living

The Woodhouse Ranch Series is intended to have long-term appeal for people from all walks of life; these designs are particularly suitable for the changing lifestyles of current and soon-to-be retirees. These single-story, open timber frame floor plans are the perfect customizable canvas for anyone seeking to build a dream home that will match their present and future lifestyle needs. For instance, you can choose to integrate any type of roof, with gable and hip roofs being the most common, and you can easily install a lower level to expand upon the already-abundant living space. The Woodhouse design process includes 3D imaging software that allows you to fly through your home, allowing you to experience every change you make before construction begins.

Check out some of our favorite timber frame ranch homes to learn how these elegant designs appeal to all ages and walks of life.
