We love city life, but it’s been a dream of ours (like that of so many others…) to put down roots somewhere on a little piece of land and build the house of our dreams. We’re not greedy– just 10 acres of so would do it for us, and we want a house of moderate proportions and amenities. Well, we think we found the perfect house to build (when we get our little slice of farmland in a few years):
We would make a few modifications to the existing floor plans:
— We would get rid of all of the bedroom closets and instead use free-standing armoirs.
— The walk in closet in the master bedroom would become a sitting area, and we would get rid of the second sink.
— In the master bath we would put a clawfoot tub with shower attachment instead of the built-in shower, and we might rearrange the master bathroom fixtures so they mirror the second bathroom, so that the tub is in front of the window also.
— In the entry, the two small closets would become one large closet.
— The side door by the closet we would leave out.
— The window in the living area would be bumped out to be a window seat with bookshelves on either side.
— We would move the attic hatch from the master bedroom into the hallway.
— Instead of shingle siding, we will have white clapboard siding.
So, one of these days…
