Welcome Home Wednesday: Renovated Ranch Homes

Let's talk about ranch style homes. 

Can't say I love them. Of all the types of beautiful houses out there, ranch styles are the kind I like the least my darlings. Ranches are the Isaacs in a group of Taylors and Zachs. They're the Howies in a group of Backstreet Boys. The Michelles in a group of Beyonces. You get where I'm going... 
But y'all. I might just end up buying one.

Ha! Yep, you heard me right. So let me explain because I feel you over there thinking, "Hello Erin, you live in Charleston, SC now, it's the world's #1 city(!) and you're going to buy a ranch style home, what about the gorgeous two storied double side porch homes in pastel colors?!" 

Well you guys, there's this little pocket of homes in Mount Pleasant, right over the Ravenel Bridge from the peninsula called the Old Village and it is so adorable and gorgeous. Not any cheaper than downtown unfortunately, but definitely more family friendly (hello awesome schools!) and less full of tourists. But. The majority of the homes in our price range around the Old Village and Old Mt. Pleasant area are ranches.

To make myself feel better, I did what any girl would do and took to Pinterest. And I can totally do this! I can totally love a ranch y'all! I mean how cute are the homes above?! I'm thinking I can take a traditional ranch and renovate it to be an adorable southern, coastal home (with a side of ranch). Here's a look at what else I found for this week's Welcome Home Wednesday...

Ok and yes, I realize not all of these are just a simple ranch with a little botox ($), some of these have full on implants ($$$$), but you get where I'm going!

What do you think? Ranches can be super cute right? Would love your thoughts especially if you've renovated a ranch.
