We are no where near being able to buy a house but I like to dream about what our house would look like.
I would love a house with a porch. Here in the Pacific Northwest porches are not the norm. But I would love a house with a porch to enjoy the cool summer evenings with a cold beverages and host friends on chilly Autumn nights with a hot cup of cider.
But no house I would buy could not have a gorgeous gourmet kitchen. I love the island. Ever since I was a kid I was jealous of houses with an island in their kitchen. All that extra space plus a place for people for people to sit. Of course I would have a gas range. I've always wanted one.
How about a gorgeous bathroom overlooking the water? Nice relaxing place to take a bath. If I lived in more tropical climate the balcony would actually be used.
As a child I wanted a four poster bed. Actually a canopy bed but I don't think I can convince Tai to go for that. But I love the simple clean lines. I would love a bedroom big enough to have a couple of chairs in. Actually I would rather have a couch, but all that room.
And the most important part a huge library with more couches for reading and relaxing. I have always wanted a house with enough room for a library, not just a couple of bookshelves!
We'll be looking for our dream house for a while. Renting is great for us right now. When there is a problem, call the landlord. Someday a house will be a great idea but right now renting is fine for us.
