The authors showed examples how well this upgrade works when done to maintain the basic integrity of the architecture.New windows, room make overs, bathrooms, kitchens and on it goes, but with an insight you seldom get from another source. ripping off old dark paneling and snatching up shag carpeting, but considering the rampant "real life" examples of bad remodeling projects, due in some measure to a lack of clear conceptual assistance, I argue this book should be "standard equipment" with the purchase of any ranch.These ranchos in turn had evolved over the millenia from the atrium houses of the Romans.These ancient houses were "closed off" from the streets, whilst providing a private outdoor space for family living, the same as many ranches today.
Design Ideas for Renovating, Remodeling, and Building New ISBN: 9781561587414 From the Publishers: Transform an ordinary ranch intothe home youve always wanted with Ranches, the latest entry in Taunton's acclaimed Updating Classic America series.And it can be updated or built as cheaply or as expensively as one needs.In this era of "bigger is not necessarily better" the old Ranch-style houses are again in the right place at the right time. The photo lay-outs are certainly a bit overpowering, but I find the text as well as the photos give somewhat a practical quality to this book.I bought a ranch some 13 years ago, and have been making the improvements that seem called for.Most of this time my only resource materials were magazines from the late '50s and early '60s (and I had to buy them in antique stores).
