A Dream House

I often find myself dreaming and wondering what life would be like if things were different. Don't get me wrong I love my life and family and wouldn't change them for the world but what if I won the lottery. What would I change if money was no option? Let's face it, lack of money can hold you back, and stop you from doing a lot of things.

The first thing that springs to mind (apart from a huge shopping trip and a holiday) would be a house. A family home, a forever home. A house that we owned, renting sucks! A house where we could mark the children's heights on the door frames of their rooms, a house where we could stay until the children leave home and fly the nest. A house that was ours forever.

When I was younger we moved quite a bit, we never stayed in one house for a very long time. I didn't mind but with Paige and Parker id love them to have a forever home. Somewhere they can grow up and even bring their children round for a big family lunch on a Sunday when they are all grew up. I don't have that and sometimes I wish I did.

So what would this dream home look like?

It would have 4, maybe 5 bedrooms. A huge kitchen diner with engineered oak flooring, granite worktops and an island. It would have a laundry room, a play room for the kids and an office/craft room for me. I'd even let mark have a man cave in the attic, haha. A garage and a big garden would finish the house off perfectly.

Me and mark have always said we would love to build our dream house. There's something so amazing about designing and having control in building your own house. You could have rooms and areas specifically designed for your family, everything tailor made to suit. We love watching all the house programmes on tv and getting plenty of ideas.

I'm not sure if we ever will but I think its a lovely dream to have and one day who knows. Until then we are perfectly fine where we are, as a family :)

Have you thought about your dream house?

  1. Sounds lovely.
    I don't think anyone can achieve their dream house unless they are a millionaire or when they are much older! Everything is so expensive. I have lived in my house for just over a year. We have had to rip out the bath and old tiles to put in a new bath and new tiles as it was leaking into the kitchen. We are yet to put in a new toilet and sink and paint the bathroom. We also have no ceiling in the kitchen at the moment as it collapsed not so long ago! Everything is money isn't it! :( Which is a shame. x

  2. I would love to build my own home. Seeing my dad do it back in Barbados has been amazing
    So much hard work though.
    I hope you're dreams come true sugar - You totally deserve it!
