HGTV Dream Home 2012 is a modern, rustic ranch home that boasts almost 4,000 square feet of living space. The home's muted gray exterior and subtle native landscaping help it blend seamlessly into the Utah terrain.
Bold-white structural details on the portico of this ranch home define its contemporary style. Subtle colors allow the columns on the porch to take center stage while simple, glass-paned windows break up the gray siding color.
The owners of this Keck & Keck-designed ranch house wanted to add a second story. To keep its original aesthetic while expanding it, the renovation maintained the beams and passive solar features such as large soffits and window placement as well as the home's strong horizontal lines, volumetric squared masses and stacking square and rectangular forms.
