What architectural style is my house

I am beginning to think about outdoor lighting and landscaping and I am having a very difficult time determining what style my house is so that I can treat it appropriately. In looking at web resources, I think it may be craftsman or bungalow but I'm still not convinced. It was built in 2003 and is on a road with mostly ranch style homes.

    My first thought was Ranch, but I think you can make it whatever you like..

    I think it's a Cape Cod style bungalow. the garage appears to be large, which confuses the style a bit.

    You might consider an element like a trellis over the garage with some vining uo to if rom the left side of the garage. I don't know that I would light both sides due to asymmetric placement of your door. http://www.flickr.com/photos/42072247@N07/38...

    Definitely a Ranch on a crawlspace or slab. Before I do anything I would run 4" black corrugated pipe underground from all of your downspouts and get that water away from your house and foundation before you start having problems or erosion issues.

    It looks a bit eclectic in style, but I don't see the architectural features that you'd see on the craftsman or bungalow styles. I see a ranch (lower pitched roof, one story) that was designed with traditional features - it sort of has a one story

    The property is really quite nice, and indicative of Ranch/country style...but the overwhelming garage really throws the visual weight off. Continuing the rock around the front of garage, midway up would soften the look. A small rock corner round-wall

    What style? All yours. =)

    I love the open floor plans of ranch style homes. I grew up in a raised ranch with a basement. Large open rooms even with

    The deep porch and low roof lend itself to a Craftsman but it's really more of a ranch/country style. As far as lighting goes, simple is best...like the Mission style...clean lines...Your front yard has all the beginnings of something

    Garage overwhelms very nice, cosy-looking home. If you have $, I'd lower the garage roof. Otherwise, I agree with A. Crain about breaking up garage's visual mass. I'd continue the dark grey from house across the garage at the same level. I'd also put in
