What Would Be Your Dream House?

I’m participating in a weekly writing prompt with Mama Kat of Mama’s Losin’ It. She provides a number of prompts each week. This week, I chose the prompt “Describe your dream home.” This prompt conjured fun pictures in my mind about what my dream home might be like. There are so many different ideas flooding my thoughts. I almost can’t imaging just one dream home. I think there would be different homes based on the periods of my life. Here are the ideas I’ve come up with.


Family Home

My dream house for our family would include large bedrooms and private bathrooms for all of my family members and guests. An open concept main floor with a finished basement to send the kids with their friends with a pool table and ping pong. I’d like to encourage more old fashioned play instead of video games. I’d have a wrap around porch and a sun room. We’d need an office for my husband because he works from home. On the property, we’d have a heated swimming pool with a hot tub. Maybe a tennis court so I could actually learn to play. We’d be on the water somewhere, probably a bay or a lake. This house does not need to be huge, nor does the property. An acre or two is fine. It feels greedy to dream this way. I know we don’t need all this, but hey, it’s a dream, right? Continuing this dream, my kids will be successful enough to buy this home from us for our retirement.


Retirement Home

This one is even more difficult to imagine. I think there needs to be at least two. Initially, I think a condo near the water somewhere because I’ve lived on one coast or the other my entire life. It might be nice to try something different like a place in the mountains or desert. Either way, a small, comfortable condo with a pool on the premises would be fine. An extra bedroom for guests is all we’ll need. Our second “home” would be a motor home. Perhaps a classic Airstream. We’d explore the country and Canada visiting every national park.

What would your dream house be like?

That life plan sounds perfect for me too! Beautiful home, beautiful views, beautiful land...we don't ask for too much!

I know most people imagine a big house as their dream home, but I think I'd prefer a small cozy little cottage. Maybe something near a clean, beautiful lake. With plenty of flowers and plants around, or a garden outside. And tons of colors and decor handmade by me inside the house!

I agree that the dream house does not need to be too big. I love the cottage idea as a retirement option too.

I love your family dream home- but I especially love the condo/airstream idea. I love family road trips and I think that I'll be spending my retirement doing the same! But I do want a home base, and a condo by the water sounds perfect.

I love your dream house photo on the top. That's beautiful! I want a farmhouse style on a couple of acres of farmland. My question is.....would I have a housekeeper for my dream home? Because the size I'd like would depend entirely on that. HA!!!!

I love farm house style too. I could not find a picture that I liked enough.

I think my dream home would be one with a loft and a barn. Maybe one day!
