My dream house, what would it be what would it look like it, and most important where will I build it. I like the countryside wide open areas, maybe farm lands with some animals. But I do like the city life with the nose, rude people, and heavy traffic on the high way. There is pros and cons to both environment, the countryside close to no air pollution, but less services you need to travel more to access services. The pros and cons of the city life more cultural opportunities, more diversity of people, more opportunities for higher education, better services like trash collection, water and sewer, cons more crime, more pollution, higher costs living. So as you can see I am little undecided about my dream house so. I am just going to explain two type of dream houses and locations one countryside and one in the city.
First the city it would most likely be in Broward County a lake front home of course “I love water”. It would be 3 story house because it’s very hard to build full basements here. So one of the floors would be more like a half basement because the property will have a 3 car garage. The outside of the house would be a dark brown wood siding, and then a simple rock base that goes up about 1 feet on the house to give the old house effect. The side facing the water would be all glass so we can always look out to the gorgeous lake in front of us. It would have a long paved private driveway. The first floor would have moving glass door, doors opens with voice commands. There is a small flower garden and vegetable garden off to the one side of the house with solar powdered lights wrap around the whole house. At night the house look like a big Christmas ornaments. There are a few grape fruit trees scattered across the property also.
Now let’s go inside the house and explore my creations. First thing you will noticed is the crown molding and a spiral staircase with lots of architectural designs. The floors in the house would be deep black hardwood, except the kitchen which well be stone tile. The walls are all off white throughout the house, but the bedrooms of course have different colors themes. The kitchen is very large and open, perfect for entertaining guests. There a large island in the middle that has a few bar stools on one side. On the other side is a wall wine fridges underneath the island. Also on the island there is a small sink. On the regular counter there is also a double large sink. The counters are all marble of course, materials from my local habitat for humanity. The colors are just a simple beige, yellow with black in it that’s if I can find them or I am just going with the color they have. The appliances are all restaurant quality. In fact, some restaurants would be jealous of the quality of the stove and oven. Let me take it up a notch, I will have a brick oven with imported Italian terracotta bricks. There would be a large two door fridge with a large pull out freezer underneath. Of course the fridge produces ice and nice perfectly cold water, no bottle water allowed on the properties because the whole house will be filter. There's a massive aquarium, neon blue in colored. I'd have a wide variety of sea creatures in it such as octopuses, sharks, Blue Gourami or 3 Spot Gourami and some The Butterfly Loach. I just hope the sharks don’t eat all the fish in the aquarium.
There is 6 bedrooms, one for me of course the master bedroom and one for future kids all with walk in closets. The other 2 would become lovely guest bedrooms for family and friends. There would be another room just for the computer and the large TV for gaming and watching movies. In that room there would also be lazy boy’s recliners for a nice relaxing movie watching experience surround sound of course. There would be the living room, with huge comfy chairs and couches and a cozy fake fire place for the family and guests to relax in, basking the ambience. And also, one extra room with another TV with pull out couches in case there are more people over than expected. It would also have a room with a microwave for popcorn and small kitchen area for other movie snacks and drinks and a theatre size screen. Yes that’s make 3 rooms with three different movie opportunity. There is 4 full bathrooms. 2 have baths, but the other 2 just have the standup shower.one added thing just for the hell of it because it’s my dream house on one of the balconies upstairs is a huge hot tub, overlooking the lake.
I picked this location because I've loved this mutli-city and the lake big, plus the beach is near by 5 minutes. The most amazing place to live in the world in my opinion. One word to describe my house Magnificent. The three best amenity I would have this house is the filter water throughout the house, like I said no plastic bottle or any sort of juice jugs. Second would be the solar panels, don’t know if I want to mount them on the roof or a section in the yards. Third is a small green house for my plants and fruits and veggies. This idea for my dream house is a revolving idea, I found myself changing it every time. I want an energy efficient home, with the windows and doors to the sprinkler for the grass. I think my chance of getting my dream house is not far fetch, if I am focus I will get it. Now for my second dream house, I mean the title does say dream house so why not have a second house. Ok back to the house, I would have the house in a remote part of the country, I am think Alaska would be a good fit. The reason I choose this location, because it’s one of the last frontier. You basically live off the land, you eat what you hunt. Typically life on the frontier is harsh, because you may have to go without plumbing or modern heating that you may be custom to. The winter up there is long and cold and the nights seems to never end. I don’t think I would live there year round because it may be too much for me to handle, but I will try. I will keep a positive mind set about it.
I would like to build a two story house on a remote area nearby a lake and or forest. I would love to have a small plane landing strip nearby. Because I want an easy access to leave if case of an emergency. The house would sit on a huge acres of land. There would be a big cozy kitchen, where I could cook whatever I wanted. A huge garden with trees, vegetable patches, and meadows where I could play with my dogs and walk through when I need to think to myself. My bedroom would be painted fire red, and I would have a balcony overlooking the lake or forest. The layout of the house would be unusual, with little passages and secret rooms the lead to other secret rooms. I would want about five bedrooms (for the family), a study, 4 bathrooms, lounge, conservatory, and a few random rooms. The rooms will be cozy, and vintage, and everyone will love visiting my home. I want a small heated swimming pool, but has not figure out where I will get the water and power from still thinking about that.
I will build a very large barn to house all my toys and machines. Sense my home will be and cold country there a few vehicle that are needed like snow plow, chainsaws and wood chippers. Now for toys it would be show skis, snow mobile and snow boards. I would also have a gun room with more guns than Rambo 1 2 3 put to together. The guns will be used for hunting purposes, it’s something I always wanted to take up. Because where I would build this house will be in the wilderness with lots of animals. Hunting will be almost and day to day activities.
Now for power I will install solar panels and have a generator, it will be used for back up. Inside the country house I’ll have hardwood flooring throughout the house. A huge deck/porch is definitely needed for this house. The best way to describe this home is Saucy. The meaning to that term as it relate to this house is that is bold and lively. My three best amenity is the solar panels, the 360 deck/porch and the open scenery. I had this second house in mind for a while now as you can see it’s not a finish project. I don’t think I even detail the interior of the home very well, because I have not reach that step yet to do. I guess I get these ideas from watching my favorite shows on TV like Alaska last frontier and railroad Alaska. I think I have a high chance of getting this house, just wondering will I survive living in to. Is it worth it to follow up on this dream house, I WILL SEE!!!!
