The 55+ age group leads the market in buying and building new houses due to a strong need for downsizing as couples become empty nesters. According to the NAHB, Baby boomers are looking for homes that accommodate their specific needs.  Most Baby Boomers want to move into a smaller home that is less than 3,000 sq. ft., and features most of the amenities on the main floor. Archival Designs features a vast selection of Ranch house plans in countless architectural styles to fit your needs!
