When you spend a life together you learn what you like and what you don’t. There are some families who long for the good-ol times and don’t need new-fangled contraptions including new homes. If the old home was good enough you can make it better with a little vision and alot of help from your architect. You don’t have to leave the ranch. Simply reinvent your space!
