Aloha Friday #8

Photobucket

It's Aloha Friday again over at An Island Life! She says on Fridays, you should take it easy!

Today, I am going to take it easy! Shortly after posting this, I'm going to get ready and we're meeting my mom out for some shopping!

Now for my question this week

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE MUST HAVES IN YOUR DREAM HOUSE?

After the market gets better, we're going to sell our house and build again on family land! When we built this house, we didn't know what we wanted in a house or even if we were going to be able to have kids! A month after we moved in, we started trying to have a family and immediately got pregnant with our little man! SO, now I THINK I know what I want for my next house!

I'm not talking a HUGE house here...but these are my "must haves". I want a bigger kitchen, a bigger pantry, I want the master bedroom downstairs, the mudroom/laundry room will have a sink, my family room will be open to the kitchen, 4-5 bedrooms, and a playroom! Of course I will have a pretty large master bath and large closets! And I want a dining room with collumns at the entrance! This is HOPEFULLY the last house we will build, so I want to know what YOU would want too so that I can start thinking about it more! Pin It!

Archways, large rooms, lots of closet space, a bath room for each bedroom, 5 bedrooms + master, library, and music room, and plenty of land to run and explore outdoors.

My girls have an upstairs den where they have an air hockey table, playstation, TV, etc. It's great for now, but when they start bringing boys around we probably will not want boys upstairs where their bedrooms are. We are talking about adding a gameroom downstairs...so that we can keep an eye on things!

I would also love a larger laundrey room...make sure you build one with cabinets, countertops, and hanging racks....I would give my left foot for some hanging racks!

You must have a giant closet...just for you...mine has built in drawers and a ginormous mirror...so I always know what I look like...good or bad!

I have kind of a long wish list! I want 4 bedrooms, a master bedroom with an attached master bath, a walk in closet, an attached 2 car garage, no dangerous stairs like we have in our house right now (spiral staircase), a decent sized back yard and a dining room! My husband has a totally different wish list which is why we will never have out dream house!

I would have to have large walk - in closets and a huge kitchen.

Jennifer said...

More bedrooms, preferably 5 or 6. An outside kitchen area with a fireplace. A nice big library! =)

My house is mostly what I want but I would love a few more closets for storage, a bigger pantry, bigger laundry room, a separate game room & an island in my kitchen for rolling out fondant & cookie dough!

My dream house would have 4 bedrooms, an open family room, larger kitchen (with eat in area and island), laundry room upstairs, and rooms that are larger with closets in them. Our house is very small now since it was built SO long ago.

It is very nice to dream :)

MOMMY-MOMO said...

a huge closet with a sofa in the middle!!

Nina said...

I am with you on the mud room with a sink. I need that place to drop all the coats, shoes, etc...
I have two boys and one is 5 and I would give anything for a toy room. Bedrooms don't cut it for toy rooms and my living room is always littered in toys and I hate it. I want a big room that can handle it all. Somewhere in the house so the door can be closed and no one has to see the mess if they stop in unannounced.

I would love to have a log cabin home with a huge master bedroom/bathroom, fireplace, big kitchen with an island, 3 bedrooms for the kids, a study, a craft room, a finished basement with a guest room, vaulted ceilings and lots of windows.
...and i'm just getting started lol

We have four kids, which can lead to a lot of clutter. Especially regarding backpacks, shoes, etc. So, my dream home would have a huge mudroom with a cubby for each child.

I am so not picky.. a roof, a heater that works consistently, two bedrooms and a yard for the dogs

Jenni Jiggety said...

A master bath and walk in closet!

A window chair where I can curl up and read a good book

Let's see. I like the house we have now ... but you can always dream.

First off I want LAND - at least 5 acres (up to about 20 or 30). I want to have a big garden, a small farm (chickens and maybe a pig or something) and lots of room for the kids to play.I want single story with 5-6 bedrooms, a game room (for now would be toy room but eventually pool table, air hockey, ping pong or something along those lines), a huge laundry room with counter space, large narrow room for food storage - maybe 15 x 6 so I could have shelving on each side and an isle down teh middle, a large great room attached to a large kitchen - with granite or other stone counters so I can roll dough out - right now i have tile, mud room would be nice.... anything else? Just the maid to clean it!

We live in California now so this is a true dream as we have to move out of state for this and it won't be happening anytime soon.
