Blog Challenge Day 15: My Dream House

Howdy Humble Readers!

Greetings from your friendly neighbourhood paint-covered hobbit!  I've spent all day working on getting a set of bookshelves painted for the nursery.  It's taken me all day because I'm moving pretty slow these days, and I had to take a nap this afternoon... heaven help me!

But the Blog Challenge beckons, and it's time to talk about my dream house... so, here's a picture:

I finally discovered the key word that describes my dream house... craftsman style!  I love the front porch and the gabled windows.  Not that my Beloved and I want an older home to maintain or a big yard, but something like the house pictured above, on a small lot, with a garage or at least a good solid shed (so that we don't have to store things in the garages and basements of family and friends). 

My dream house would have 3 bedrooms, and 3 bathrooms (the en suite would have a nice deep soaker tub and a rain shower).  It would have an informal living room, a cozy dining room, a comfy family room (with a ton of built in book cases), and most importantly, a bee-ewe-tee-ful big kitchen.  Lots of cupboards and drawers (I want drawers for my pots, pans, and tupperware), a big pantry, acres of counter space... a double wall oven, one of those french door fridges, and an island with a butcher-block top.  I would have tons of pantry space, and a nice big deep freeze. 

And... if all that weren't enough, my dream house would come with a friendly, very competent maid service that would come by weekly to clean. 

That's not asking too much, is it?

What would be your favourite room in your dream house?


  1. I want a library/craft room :) Tons of shelves, music, tv for when I crochet, fireplace!

  2. Sounds perfect! A hobbit definitely needs a gourmet kitchen.

  3. My dream house would have a large, well lit craft room, a library, and a top-notch kitchen. I'm not sure which room I would like better.

  4. I just moved into mine. :) So many things we love about it!

  5. I think my favorite room in my dream house would be a library/entertainment room. Big comfy chairs and a comfy couch with a big fireplace surrounded by built-in bookshelves from floor to ceiling. Oh, and of course a big tv and awesome sound system for the hubs.

  6. I think you were describing my dream home NOT yours. LOL! :)


Hobbits are social creatures, and love hearing from friends old and new. Pull up a comfy chair and let's get to know one another.
