The house is the place of abode, rest, rejuvenation, and sustenance. We base our lives in houses, but how many of us have actually taken the time to identify, formalize, and put to writing what constitutes our dream for our ideal house?
Here is a found essay, originally posted by dxallen23, describing such a vision…
Simplicity is beauty. That’s what people usually say about many things. But for me, simplicity is not enough when it comes about my dream house. My dream house would still be simple, but in another manner. It wouldn’t be simple that it will be made out of wood, but it would be simple in a way that it has simple designs, yet it would be still appealing in the eyes.
My dream house would be situated in place that has a lake nearby. So that everyday will be refreshing by the breeze coming from those trees that would feel so good. I choose to have a lake nearby because it is better to go natural than artificial like making swimming pools that would make my dream house cost a lot. Also, I can go fishing on the lake if I feel like doing it. My dream house will not have a tall gate because it would be inappropriate for a house near a lake. On my backyard, there will be a half basketball court where I can play basketball whenever I want. Then there will also be a wide place in the backyard wherein it would be a picnic place for my family.
My dream house will be a 2-story house with a basement and it will be made out of wood. My basement will be a stockroom. All of my things that have sentimental value on me would be placed there. Also, there would be rum stored and hidden there because as they say, the longer the rum stays the more it tastes good. Even though it is dark there will be enough lighting to see everything in the basement.
On the first floor, there will be a lot of space. The living room, kitchen, dining room will be located on the first floor. The walls would have my favourite theme that will look cool on my eyes. Along the hallway, there would be paintings and our family pictures and achievements. The living room would be spacious. Then on the living room, there will be a big sofa where all of us could watch our favourite movies comfortably and a big chandelier that lights up the whole living room. The dining room and the kitchen would be near each other. The dining table will be made out of from the best wood and it would be a masterpiece of someone who is good in wood carving. On the kitchen, all utensils would be made out of stainless steel. These room will have a theme that has pale colors which makes us also hungry when we get there.
On the second floor, it will have 3 rooms and 2 bathrooms. One for the master’s bedroom and one for the 2 rooms. My workout room will also be located in the second floor. On the master’s bedroom, there will be a small balcony so that everytime I wake up, I can breathe some fresh air directly. Also, the 2 rooms will be intended for the other members of the family, wherein each of the rooms will have beds which are double deck. On the workout room, there will be a treadmill, and few weights.
My dream house is simple yet it is a house where I think I can live happily and comfortably with my family. I choose it to be made out of wood so that it would be environment-friendly and to be appropriate with the location near the lake. This concludes my dream house.
