a rancher is a kind of house.

we use to have a rancher till we made it this sprawling thing

Ranch Style houses have many of these features:
Single story
Low pitched gable roof
Deep-set eaves
Horizontal, rambling layout: Long, narrow, and low to the ground
Rectangular, L-shaped, or U-shaped design
Large windows: double-hung, sliding, and picture
Sliding glass doors leading out to patio
Attached garage
Simple floor plans
Emphasis on openness (few interior walls) and efficient use of space
Built from natural materials: Oak floors, wood or brick exterior
Lack decorative detailing, aside from decorative shutters

It is a single wide mobile home. The little room on the front was brought from my parents' house and attached on ours. The whole thing needs a new roof. We have done some major remodeling. The inside was gutted and floors were falling through so we redid all of them and the bed rooms were too small so a 2 bedroom house became a 1 bedroom with an actual laundry room. They had the washing machine in the hallway and the dryer in the kitchen!!!! It was silly how they did it.
