a ranch home

While studying for my latest licensure exam, I came across a simple section of a ranch-style home, which I couldn’t resist but take stab at.  The hearth above is the result of that drawing, and the plans below are the further explorations thereof.  The floorplan references Mies’ linear homes of the mid 1950’s (McCormick, 1952 & Greenwald, 1955), with a linear series of kitchen, dining, and living spaces separated by casework storage and toilet units, while long porches flank full-height doors.  Because my first plan neglected to include the bathroom in particular, the bottom sketch notes how the bath, murphy bed, and storage unit works out.
