Are You Ready for One Level Living?

Welcome to your best semi-custom/custom home building option in Douglas County and El Paso County, Colorado! Rather than buying a tract (production/subdivision) home for the price of what we charge, consider our standard features and the integrity of our front approach to the home and layout, and your decision will be an easy one!

At Ranch Living, we know how to make the front of your new Ranch Home sizzle with curb appeal. We call it “Integrity of Approach.” Consider one of our seven packages, and we’ll deliver a great floor layout with an even better front elevation with “Curb Appeal+” for less!

Why settle for less? While we do offer high-end, custom home packages in the $700,000 – $1.8 million range, the majority of our home package sales fall in the mid $600,000s to mid $800,000s price range.

Call us for a consultation to discuss everything that’s pertinent to your contemplation of a semi-custom build. We’ll provide you with a great deal of additional features and extra square footage at a price lower than you are being quoted from any of our competition. If you are preparing to buy a tract home, or just looking to build your semi-custom dream home on acreage, before you do, contact us at your convenience for a no obligation 30 minute consultation.

What I really want is a smaller, easy to maintain, semi-custom home that’s loaded with all the goodies!”?

An important consideration regarding square footage realities –

Please note that when looking at the size of our floorplans, we quote the finished square footage on the main level. Our competition typically does not. They include the entire square footage of the basement as well as the square footage of the main level. This makes it difficult to determine just how large the main floor really is, which is the most important living area square footage in the home.

By including basement finish square footage in with the main level finished square footage, it gives the appearance of a much lower cost per square foot to build. It’s because of this reality that we felt it more than casually important to mention, since finished basement square footage typically runs in the vicinity of $40 +/- per square foot, while main level finished square footage typically runs $180 – 230 per finished square foot. As you can see, main level finished square footage is significantly more expensive than basement finished square footage. Based on the aforementioned facts, please remember to determine how much finished square footage is on the main level.

Additional Note:

Our home packages are usually semi-custom in nature. Finished basement square footage cost realty can be significantly more than the $40.00 mentioned above, in a high end custom environment, considering that numerous upper-end finishes will be utilized.
