What kind of house are you?  Do you have a favorite house style?  Is there a certain kind of house when you see it, there is that instant recognition and you just know.  We all have favorites of just about every nice thing or food.  My favorite candy is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.  My favorite kind of shoes are slip-ons.  My favorite dinner to make is casseroles.

I’ve written about different houses and been wondering what kind of homes are the favorites.  I am showing some different houses here, some from my blog and some from Houzz, and down below is a poll to take on your favorite house style.

When I think of a ranch I think of a one-story home. This is a mountain style one-story that is in San Francisco. It’s a good example of long, close to the ground profile ranch.
