Do you ever find yourself wishing you had artistic abilities? Well today I find myself wishing I did. I'm working out in my head what I want in a dream home, but I can't put it on paper. At least, not in picture form, which is what would help me. Let me try to describe my dream home.
I want a big family, so a big house is needed, but not a grand house. I don't want it to look or feel huge, but I want for there to be plenty of room for everyone.
I want a covered porch which wraps around at least two sides of the house. Maybe a porch on two sides and then a deck attached to that for the back.
I want a dog trot down the middle (basically a covered porch down the middle of the house), except I want to have glass sliding doors which slide into the wall to disappear. I would likely use the dog trot as a school room.
I want a big kitchen with an island in it which doubles as a bar. I'd like the kitchen to be open to the dining room and living room. The living room would have a pretty staircase leading to the upstairs which would probably have a bathroom or two with five or so bedrooms.
On the other-side of the dog trot, you'd open a door to see a hallway with a simple staircase to the upstairs, and a door to a bathroom (which would be attached to a downstairs bedroom). The hallway would lead to the master bedroom which would have a master bathroom attached. The master bedroom would have french doors which would open to the deck.
I want this house to be homey. Most likely, hard wood floors throughout except for bathrooms.
Most of the pictures I'm about to post, I mostly just like the idea. Not necessarily the colors or exact style.

I'm dreaming big, y'all.
