When I was a little girl out here on the prairie I grew up in a tiny 1000 sq ft house in a crowded neighborhood and would dream of one day owning a sprawling ranch on an acre or more. I'd see them from the highway as we drove down the road. So I did and still do --despite all the new Dallas type houses around me. I love the low slung sprawl of them. I do think of modernizing mine, adding another wing, even an upper story, vaulting the ceiling and opening the boxy living room to the kitchen, but probably won't. I love looking at remodels and considering possibilities. I love ranch homes and find the possibilities endless. Unlike the ubiquitous Dallas homes..sometimes acres and acres of identical roof and brick colors, ranch homes are more unique and can reflect the individual personality of its owner. Viva the ranch!
