buying the house of our dreams is many years away, my husband and I have come up with a few ideas for what we definitely want when we can afford it.
- We kind of want a dome home because of its energy saving capacity. If not a dome home, we also like craftsman style houses and farmhouses. Whatever type of house we end up with doesn't have to be big, but we definitely want it to be well built with durable, energy efficient materials. We are doing fine with our 1000 square feet now, but once we have kids that might be a little bit cramped so we are thinking something around 1700-2000 square feet. Big enough to have breathing room, but not excessive.
- I want a neutral color scheme for the walls so I can easily change out the decorations and mix up accent colors. I especially love smoky light gray colors and warm, airy beiges. My current top choices are Smoke Embers, Aganthus Green, and Winter White, all by Benjamin Moore.
- I NEED to live in a more rural area so I can have some chickens and ducks. Ideally, we would have a ton of "lawn" space, but not a lot of grass because I plan on devoting much of my yard space to edible perennials and native fruit and nut trees.
Well, that's all the dreaming I have time for now. Hopefully this post inspires you to dream about your dream home. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!
