What is the Difference Between Our 5 Most Popular Utah Ramblers?

Deciding to build a new home brings many decisions, and one of the biggest is choosing the style and floorplan of your new home. For example, would you prefer single-story living, or do you want multiple levels? Do you want a house with a loft or one with a basement?

While there are many different styles of homes to choose from, ramblers are popular among homeowners for quite a few reasons. Why are they so popular? And what types of ramblers does Arive Homes offer? Read on to learn more about this highly liveable style of home and our own unique ramblers in Utah.

Here’s Why So Many of Our Utah Homeowners Love Ramblers

What are the defining characteristics of rambler homes? Ramblers, also known as ranch-style houses, are single-story homes with ground-level entries. Ramblers got their name because of the way they sprawl across a piece of land, taking up greater width than other home styles. They’re commonly built in a square or rectangular shape and may or may not have a basement. Ramblers foster a connection to the outdoors with their sliding glass doors and large windows. Many feature attached garages for added convenience. Ramblers in Utah are popular because they have many benefits for homeowners. Here are just a few:

Ramblers Offer Single-floor living

Single-floor living has many benefits for people at any stage of life. One reason why many people choose to have single-floor living is that it’s easy to navigate. There’s no need to go up and down stairs, which means it is safer for young children and seniors. You can move easily and more quickly throughout the house, and there’s no need to worry about getting furniture, cleaning equipment, or laundry up and down stairs.

Ramblers Are Low-Maintenance

Maintaining a rambler is more low-maintenance than maintaining a home with multiple stories. Washing windows, cleaning gutters, and moving furniture are much easier with only one level.

Ramblers Provide Open Floor Plans

Ramblers often feature open floor plans that are perfect for entertaining family and friends. Homes with an open floor plan have improved traffic flow between rooms, increased natural light, and generally offer more space (or the illusion of it).

Possibilities for Flexible Design

While ramblers from the past may have been simple in their design, today’s modern ramblers open up a world of design possibilities. When you take a look around, you’ll see ramblers with many floorplan variations. You’re sure to find the perfect floor plan for your lifestyle. If not, ramblers are easy to modify and even add on to later, should the need arise.


Ramblers are often energy-efficient homes because they’re easier to heat and cool. Instead of having to heat and cool multiple stories, you’ll only be dealing with one floor. Generally speaking, the HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard to pump air throughout the home, and heat is distributed more evenly. Ramblers with finished basements also offer a cool refuge during the hot summer days.
