I've had a lot of time to think about what I want in a home. Now, I'm not looking for a McMansion. I don't want a pile of land.
I someday want a house, with enough of a fenced back yard that I can let Misty run in. Enough to put a grill and some chairs. Now this doesn't take much. Many townhouses will give me this. So at times I let me mind wander and think about what I'd really want....
I drive by this house every day. I've never been inside, but something about the house makes me happy. Like it would be a cozy home.
In a perfect world, I'd like to build this house with a basement. Basements are rare in Virginia... but I'd LOVE one. I'd make it a game room, a place to put the video games, to play role playing games. Maybe with a wet bar!
I know that the upstairs is one of those open spaces. That's where I'd love to have my bedroom. My idea of a perfect bedroom consists of 2 smaller rooms, connected by a doorway. One just has the bed and the night stand. The other has closets, clothes racks, dressers and the like. A dressing room of sorts. Though, I don't like traditional dressers. I like things like these, with the fabric drawers. Because I'm OCD like that.
I am one of those people, that dones't seen the importance of a formal living room. I'd rather have a library. With a fancy computer. And maybe a chair and love seat.
In the realm of me wanting to save money, I'd look into solar panels, and the ultra efficient heat pump. Environmentally friendly AND saves me money. Sign me up.
All in all, I need to win the lottery.
