Not gonna lie, I saw this documentary about a green home. It was completely self sustaining... I would love to have one of those!!
I'd like to be outside of the city, but not too far away. I would like a basement and a nice backyard with wildlife. I would also like a big garden.
Peace, love, and happiness would always be stocked inside
my dream house is a big huge victorian. I dunno where it will be... But I love those kinds of houses. I see one near my aunt's house it's awesome. It's got this tower at the top and I just love it.
Location: foot of the Rockies, preferably nearish Denver. Far enough away for privacy, near enough to get a decent Internet connection.
Appearance, outside: Jay and I discuss this fairly often. He likes stonework, and I like a contrasty paint scheme. I hate those muddy, nondescript neutrals that have been used for the last decade or so. I'd want a small flower/magickal garden, a small vegetable garden, and a low-water use, low-maintenance remainder. Trees.
Appearance, inside: Our house right now is all white inside. I itch to paint it. I like color around me; pastels make me cringe. I want wood floors - durable ones - so when grandkids visit, I don't have to worry about it. Woodwork, arts and crafts-style.
Other interior details: A beautiful stairway. Lots of closets. A room for each kid. An office/craft room/studio for me, an office for Jay. A LIBRARY. I like to cook, but I don't need a gourmet-style kitchen. A good espresso machine. A big pantry. A big master bath with a whirlpool tub. With my fibromyalgia, that's almost a must. Upstairs laundry. Energy-efficient EVERYTHING. Instant hot water heaters. Whole-house vacuum.
What's stocked: Cherry Coke, good coffee. Our favorite foods. Zum soap. Good chocolate. Fruit.
Dream Home - a bungalow house
Where is it - near sea side with the cold and fresh air
Look like - always a new built
Always stocked inside - love
It's a bit tucked away but full of wood (real wood) and there is food, water, heating supplies for the winter, and room for friends. "Old fashioned" looking.
Hmm. Dream home, huh... Well, I can imagine a summer house somewhere near a crystal clear water and beach. The house would be stationary, hovering over the clear blue water. The house would be a decent size with Hawaiian furniture... It'd be cozy and isolated, and you'd hear the breeze and crash of the water... Inside would be stocks of guitars and ukuleles... A place where I can share who I really am with someone.
Where is it? Somewhere with mountains. I don't think I could live anywhere that didn't have mountains.
What does it look like? I really like the Arts & Crafts style. The house would only be as big as it needs to be, but I would like it to have a good sized TV room with state-of-the-art equipment (whatever that may be at the time) and space for all my Star Wars stuff.
The house I have now would be pretty close to my dream house (minus the Arts & Crafts style) if I could finish the basement, furnish it the way I want and pick it up and move it to a bigger lot so the neighbors weren't so close with a better view of the mountains.
What would it always be stocked with? Lots of music, lots of movies and lots of books.
It is somewhere in the Appalachians. It's one of those old Victorians with a wraparound porch, a tower, and lots of wooden lacy stuff like a wedding cake. It has a separate library with window seats and built-in bookshelves, a living room with an enormous leather couch, and a bedroom with one of those huge four-poster beds. Good books, good movies, and plenty of ice cream.
Besides a castle (heh heh), my dream home would be a smallish to medium-sized tudor-style house or one made out of stone with a lush yard and ivy maybe growing up the side... Arches and spires would be present. It would be located on an English/Scottish/Welsh countryside. It would always be stacked with classic books (very old ones), fun movies/tv shows to watch, and lots of tea!!
