A House

Lately I have been dreaming about the house I want to build. Originally I wanted a Spanish style house with a tile roof, but I just don't think that is suitable for this climate. What I would really like is an old style southern plantation kind of house. One with a front porch, thick walls, and crown mouding. Something timeless and classic that my family can live in for generations!!

I have several requirements of my new house. They may change, but just slightly. I will start at the basement:
  • 2-4 bedrooms
  • 1 full bathroom with just a walk in shower, 1 half
  • a theatre and games room, with a pool table, poker table, fusball, etc.
  • storage room for veggies and canned goods

Main level:

  • Formal living room, no TV
  • Formal dining room
  • large kitchen with lots of counter space, with a walk in pantry
  • family room that is open to the kitchen
  • breakfast nook
  • laundry room
  • study / library
  • possibly a guest bedroom/bathroom combo

Second Floor ( my dream house HAS to have a second floor!)

  • Master bedroom with big bathroom. Must have a big jacuzzi tub and a walk in shower ( like one that doesn't need a shower curtain or doors, you just walk around a corner) Also must have a fireplace that is see through into the bathroom. And the bathroom has to have two sinks. Also a nice big walk in closet! And a balcony!
  • 2-3 other bedrooms
  • full bathroom with a tub
  • linen closet

I know. It is a dream. But if you are going to build a house it might as well be a dream house! It doesn't have to be giagantic, but it has to have enough room for 6 kids! Plus a few that I want to adopt!

I have been looking at plans online a bit, and everything either has two many stupid extra rooms, or the top floor does not have a good layout or the master bedroom is on the botton floor. And the laundry room on the main floor is a must. I am sure we will just have to get plans drawn up someday, when we are actually serious about it!

I think I will post some pictures of ones I like just for fun, but I will do it seperatley or else it will be confusing!
