Contemporary Ranch style Home

My client came to me after staying in an upscale Hotel in the Napa valley and had an idea to change her 1960's ranch into a contemporary style ranch home. The idea was to get rid of the stucco exterior, add several dormers that brought style and light as well as change the roof to a standing seam metal roof. The entire house had metamorphisized into a whole new home and brings together a very clean lined look.

I hope your plans to remodel come to fruition and that you keep me in mind. My office is actually out of Livermore so we are closer than you think. Since you are interested in the contemporary style you might like a house that I just finished but don't have any photos of yet, only this rendering that I did. Thanks again and I look forward to talking with you some day.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Roots of Style: Ranch Architecture Roams Across the U.S.
The rustic board and batten siding, which is common on originals, on this remodeled ranch paradoxically appears painted white, in a contemporary fashion. Also common in ranch style, the prominent and/or massive chimney anchors the otherwise horizontal arrangement. Note that the garage appears secondary and minor to the front of the house. Typical of the sprawling ranch is minimized visual impact of the garage doors.
Fred Albert added this to 10 Advantages of the Humble Ranch House
9. Adaptability. Sometimes all a ranch house needs is a new skin. White board and batten siding gives a familiar form a fresh, new look here.
