Southwest Ranchstyle Homes

What is the difference between Ranch Style Homes and Southwest RanchStyle Homes?
Let's look at what's the same in all ranch style homes:

So... what makes the Southwest Ranch Style House?

They are still one story with a few minor (or major) changes.

The exterior is next to get a face lift.

The wood shingle roof will be replaced with composite tile.

The traditional style front door will be replaced with a mesquite solid wood door covered in large hand hammered Mexican style nail heads.

Most of the grass will be yanked out... and replaced with crushed gravel, brick paver's and potted plants. We aren't big on desert landscaping, but with our large mesquite shade trees... the grass isn't happy anyway.

The paint color will change from light yellow-beige to something that resembles coffee with cream.

The garage door will be replaced... I am hoping for a rustic wooden gate look.
