Full Answer

A ranch style is a simple one-story house with minimal exterior decorations. The building is either L-shaped or an asymmetrical rectangle.

The chalet plan has pointed high roof with tilted ends to prevent the build-up of snow. The homes are designed with huge windows to allow much light to brighten the house and improve heating.

A two-story style has two above-ground levels. Communal rooms such as the dining room, living room and kitchen occupy the bottom floor, while bedrooms occupy the top floors.

The Cape Cod style can be a one- or two-story home. The exterior is covered with dormers, shingles and windows with shutters. The roof slopes sharply to offer additional space for storage and floor area.

Colonial style homes are tall with large white columns. Front porches wrap all the way around the house.

Green style homes use green technology such as solar panels to achieve energy efficiency. Other green energy features are also available.

The mansion-style plan is larger than the other styles.
