Don’t go up, go back! Make the house bigger and more like an Eichler, but still quite efficient and “not-so-big”… that was the design approach for this post-WWII Ranch house conversion. The single story option met all program requirements and saved the owners a lot of money as well. Out of respect for this tree-lined, well-kept ranch style neighborhood, Klopf made only minimal changes to the front of the house.
