Sourcing for this article appears to be a mix of good mainstream works and strange media links. I would like to bring more of the mainstream thought into the article so that it represents what scholars are thinking on the topic, not what drive-by editors thought would be cool to add. Here are some sources that I want to make a note of for possible future use:

If you asked most Americans to describe a ranch style house, I doubt if any of them would come up with something even remotely resembling this one. It's main style is "Spanish mission" and its floorplan deeper into the lot and the narrow side windows on the left remind one of various "bungalows" built in the 20s and 30s. It severely lacks the clean simplicity of the Spanish mission style, however. The cornice brackets, the Palladian window, and the heavy look of the concrete rather than terra cotta roof tiles all violate any sense of proportion. And who thought of putting such a massive window into the garage?
The most archetypical ranch style house would be this one at the wikipedia article "Ranch-style house." Although somewhat larger, it has nearly all the features one would expect from this style: the rambling floorplan, the Frank Lloyd Wright-ish deep eaves, and even a big picture window. --Janko (talk) 09:52, 1 September 2012 (UTC)
Houses that are buildings, but not a residence (House of Worship, Houses of Parliament, etc.)
Should houses that are buildings, but not a residence (house of worship, Houses of Parliament, etc.) be in the main "house" article, or should they be discussed on the disambiguation page?
