February Blog Challenge – Day 3

I spent ages searching the web for pictures of my dream home and I couldn’t find one that grabbed my attention.

With our many children, David’s many bikes and my many craft supplies we actually do, ideally, need a fairly large house but I don’t want a big house, if that makes sense?

What my dream house MUST have is….

  • A big kitchen with lots of cupboards and lots of work space, a breakfast nook and a walk in pantry.



  • A craft space for me, a study for David and toy room for the children – these 3 can in no way be linked and included in the toy room would be the xBox, Wii etc.
  • 6b1fe20ccf512ae7e5a0ddc1f4dea68b

  • A pool (that cleans itself and needs NO human intervention WHAT SO EVER)
  • A BIG double garage so there is space to store David and Cameron’s bikes, golf clubs, squash racket and various other sporting things the two of them have!
  • A downstairs toilet.
  • A large covered outside entertaining area.
  • 1dc6d6373201c631c7b2213d42f5b140

  • A walk in cupboard in the main bedroom.
  • A wrap around porch.
  • A separate laundry big enough for a washing machine, tumble drier and 3 washing baskets!!!


What are your must haves in a dream house?

    What a stunning “dream” home. I just don’t know about the swimming pool that needs no intervention. If you find that you will make a fortune…and my hubby will love it.

    My dream kitchen is the one in Something’s Gotta Give – oh man!!!! I can’t have open shelving because of all the bright colours I like which will just create visual disharmony! Which must have a bench!!!

    I also would LOVE to have an outside area (a room in effect) that we could spill out to if weather’s good like it is here about 9 months of the year. The one in your pic is gorgeous.

    And my OWN study! Currently one desk is so messy I want to sweep it all off into a bin but I’m not allowed to touch that desk… :)

    I do love the kitchen and craft room that you’ve posted.

    I have to be honest – i love my home. Yes, it is old and there is a lot that could be done to it (but remember money never gets spent on the farmhouse) but it is a real home and i am so happy here. The one thing I am really after is a enclosed patio. This is a dream that I will keep on dreaming!

    But our home is big – we all have our own room and then a space to be in – which is just what I love about it.

    Ok, I think I need to add some of those to my dream home as well!

    I love that picture of the undercover entertainment area, I am going to save that picture and hopefully one day……

    Ooh my dream kitchen looks like the one Anna Olson bakes in! Three or four HUGE ovens, cooling racks down the side, and drawers full of ingredients right where I mix!
