Ranch versus Modified Ranch dilemma

4 years ago

We are building on a lake lot in the spring and cannot agree on architectural style. We have two kids, 8 and 9 years old. My husband wants a sprawling ranch home with all our bedrooms on the main level. I want the master on the main, but the kids up. I found my dream plan that gives our kids ample space above the garage and everything we need on the main level for now and as we grow older:

He believes the resale (although we don't plan to move ever) on the ranch house will be better and also the cost to build will be less. Trying to understand the pros and cons. Thanks for any advice.
