Today, many ranch homes feature sliding glass doors, patios, attached garages, deep overhanging eaves. Some ranch homes have basements while others do not. More modest ranch homes, particularly those built in the years after WWII, have been construction on concrete slabs. Traditional California ranch homes tend to be more sprawling in nature as designers attempted to better integrate them into the local landscape.
