     This is my sons house that we just put up for sale.  He wonGarden Of the Month last Summer with his green thumb.  The brick ranch style is the norm for the last 50 years in the suburban areas of New Orleans.  From the 1960’s to 2000 this has been the most popular style with many, many variations. It withstands the weather with the least amount of maintenance.

       The ranch style home of the 1960’s followed the raised cottage.  The brick ranch was the number one style of home for 30 plus years starting in the 1960’s.  The brick exterior is great for our hot and rainy weather which means very little or no exterior maintenance.  The concete slab was much cheaper than the raised homes.  These were also much larger than the cottages.  It will be a while but they too will be historic one day.
