My Dream House

I found this really cute and fun idea on Jen's Blog Stay-At-Home {MOM}ents. I had to play along.

Name 13 things your dream house would have. I added some pictures and had The Hubs play along. These are in no particular order:

1) I would love to have an upstairs. Not sure why, but would just like one.

2) 5 bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms. I know this sounds excessive, but this is a DREAM house. My reasoning you ask? Well the master bedroom and a master bath, with a beautiful Jacuzzi tub and 2 sinks (ok getting off track here), 2 kids rooms, a guest room, and the last room. I would love for my scrap booking stuff or a play room. The half bath on the first floor and the other 2 on the second floor. One for guests, and the other for Belle (and any other siblings that may come along in the distant future).

3) A very nice large back yard. With a small wooded area behind it. Trees, enough to not completely see the neighbor behind us. Large enough for #12 and #13, and too have a nice play area for Belle. Oh and an area for a vegetable garden. Cause I have no place for one now.

4) A finished basement, for a play room if we don't put it upstairs. And for a nice rec room.

5) Air conditioning. I have never really felt the need that we HAD to have it. Until this summer. OMG and I dying for it.

6) Walk in closets. Not just in the master bedroom, but in Belle's room too. She has a better wardrobe then I do and greatly needs a beautiful walk in closet.

7) A beautiful up to date gourmet kitchen. With a dishwasher, a brand new stove, a corner sink that blends right into the counters (intergrated sink I think it's called). Marble counters. An island. I could go on and on. Can you tell I despise the kitchen I have now?

8) A pantry for said beautiful kitchen. Walk in would be nice.

9) A fire place. Solely for the mantel. So I could place pictures on it and decorate it for Christmas.

10) A nice size mud room with storage.

11) 1st or 2nd floor Laundry. I have to show off my beautiful red front load washer (I already own this). With storage and a nice size counter to fold laundry. This would be a dream come true and The Hubs knows this.

12) A nice size deck on the back of the house. Partially covered.

13) I choose for 13 a pool. With a hot tub or Jacuzzi. And it has to come with someone to clean it :)

And I have to add a 14) A nice wine fridge. It doesn't have to be large. I could fit nuzzled away with a counter over it. With a rack hanging for my beautiful wine glasses that I would own specifically for that area.

I really could go on and on. There are so many things I would love to have in my dream house.

The Hubs list:

1. Air Conditioning
2. Inground Pool w/hot tub and waterfall

3. Dishwasher
4. Finished water tight basement
5. Lawn mowing service
6. Snowplow Service
7. Enough land to have people over
8. Man Cave
9. Children's Play room
10. Full house wired with stereo system
11. Computer Room
12. 2 car garage
13. Maid service.

Apparently we really differ when it comes to our dream house. Maybe we should work on that a bit. Although I love the maid service!!


  1. Lovely list. But after 5 inches of rain yesterday, I'd just settle for a dry basement! SITS sent me by, and I'm glad they did...

    We've Come a Long Way, Baby...

  2. Great ideas!!! Glad you liked the idea. :)

  3. I love your home ideas! My husband and I have built 5 homes (we've lived in 4 of them). It is so much fun learning what you do and don't like and making the next house more suited to your own needs.

    Popping in from SITS!

  4. ahhh i would never end about my dream home lol- passed by from SITS


Leave me some comment love!!! I love hearing what you have to say!
