A rambler is also known as a rancher, or a single-story.  I grew up in one, and I currently live in one, and thank Heaven I do!  I’ve had surgery on my knee, and am now crutching around the house.  I always look at the positive… positive side of living in a 1600 sq ft rambler?  Even if I am ‘camped-out’ in the family room, it takes only about twenty crutch-plant-and-swings to get to the bathroom.  The great part about having a tiny master bath?  I can pivot and hop all around the room and not have to use the crutches while I’m in there.  What’s more, I can’t really use them anyway, as the bathroom, exluding the tub, is about 6’x6′! 

I know I don’t need to ‘sell’ people on the benefits of a rambler.  They’re the most expensive home to build, but they have the best re-sale value, too.  When you’re selling your home, you need to appeal to the largest amount of people possible.  Everyone can live in a rambler…not everyone can live in a split-entry or tri-level or two story for any number of reasons, but health issues are among the primary.

I’m just plain relieved that we chose this house.  As we live in it longer, it becomes an even better choice.  In fact it would be darn near perfect if husband and I could agree on a new carpet color (I want it lighter, he wants it darker but the current carpet just gets worse as we debate!)…
