House [Aug. 12th, 2005|11:19 am]
[emotional state |hopefulhopeful]

Ok, this is mostly for Darxus and myself, but y'all can share in my dreams.

This is what I want in a house one day.

3 bedrooms, preferably with their own baths, but not necessary. Master bed & bath, and we each have our own "guest room" with either a private bath or a shared bath for the two would also be ok.

Main floor: Open floor-plan, kitchen counter overlooking some of the living area, kitchen area in corner. Also, a 1/2 bath.

Others, possibly in a finished basement, some maybe on the bedroom level: Movie/media room. Game room (pool table, air hockey (maybe) and pinball machine(s) would rock. pool table most important). Craft room/art studio. Weight/workout room.

I'd like solarium w/ a hot tub, but that's all ricevermicelli's fault (she suggested it) We definitely need a hot tub of some type somewhere.

Large garage for bikes. And I ain't talking about the type of bike that craves spandex shorts.

No library? Or do the books go around the game room in fancy bookshelves so it looks like one of those old fashioned clubs?

Well, Darxus has cracked maybe one or two books all year, and I tend to just borrow stuff from people, so a book shelf here-and-there isn't going to be a big issue. One in the kitchen for cookbooks, and I do have a bunch of quilting/craft books and magazines that are going to need a place, but most of the novels and stuff I'll actually want to keep vs am willing to give away can probably go in my guest room. It wouldn't surprise me at all if there were more DVD's than books in our current place. That's kind of sad, actually...

Gotcha. :) That's a better philosophy for allergies and space issues. Unfortunately, we're bookaholics (as you may recall from our office at the old apartment. :P) so, it's always an issue.

Yes, gotta have the hot tub. And the pool table... and the garage space for the bikes... :-) (yes, the ones that crave leather, not spandex;-)

I'd really like a craft/art studio too... My mother-in-law's kiln is ours as soon as we have space for it and I would love to get back into pottery.
