The California Ranch House has been an iconic symbol of the American Dream, since the 40's and 50's.  It's only recently that I've began to see this style of home as one that would appeal to me.  I guess it may be that we're living in one now on Lido Isle.

Architects and Designers like Neutra, Lautner and Charles Moore, started the it all with their inventive, indoor/outdoor living designs that soon led to versions of tract housing that began popping up throughout the Western United States.

Ranch Houses-Living the American Dream, by David Weingarten, explores the different possibilities that have been adapted to this classic style.  It's a super good one for the coffee table and sure conjure up visions of the Brady Bunch.
