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.

  • 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
