U-shaped ranch house plans (sometimes shortened to: "u shaped house plans") wrap around three sides of a patio or courtyard creating a sheltered area for entertaining or surrounding a key landscape element. Most u shaped house plans (like the rest of our house designs) can be modified to meet your exact specifications. For instance, if you've fallen in love with a u-shaped ranch house plan that's too wide for your lot, we'll probably be able help you alter the plan's footprint so the width is no longer a problem. Likewise, if you need to add or remove a bedroom or bath, change the roof-line, select a new foundation, or just about anything else, give us a call at 1-800-913-2350 or click the "Modify This Plan" button on the plan's product detail page and follow the instructions. We look forward to hearing from you!
