More Dream House Ideas

We need to have some work done on our roof and as we go round and round on whether to repair or replace, standard shingles or fancy ones, etc etc etc, the idea of resale keeps coming back up. Which has me thinking of where we’ll live next. Which has me pinning ideas for my future dream house that will magically be everything I ever wanted without costing a million dollars. Behold:

I love the upper cabinets in this kitchen. I use the tops of our cabinets to store rarely-used serving pieces already and love the idea of having glass doors to let them be on display without getting so dusty.

Our Fifth House

This is what I imagine the back of my perfect house looking like. I would love to have a backyard that’s private enough to leave all those windows uncovered.

Coming Home: The Southern Vernacular House

Something like this is completely necessary. So much storage!

Better Homes & Gardens

This is exactly how I imagined the entry. I have this vague idea in my head of what The Dream House is like, and every now and then I see a picture and I’m like “Oh yeah, that’s it!” Like I recognize it from my subconscious or something. This photo and the one above of the back porch both had that effect on me.

Happy Friday, my friends! I hope the weather is as beautiful wherever you are as it is here right now. The internet tells me it may rain later but at this moment it’s blue skies and 81-unheard of for Louisiana in August! I am so looking forward to this weekend. It’s the first in months that I won’t be studying and I will in fact be doing some fun stuff that I can’t wait to tell you about on Monday. Have a good one!

  1. We were in the same boat with needing a new roof for a home that is not our forever home. We weighed the pros and cons, spent 6 months (!!) getting estimates, speaking to our realtor, and deciding what was the best option for any of the future scenarios for our house. It’s a little hard to swallow spending such a huge chunk of change on a house you won’t be in forever! Good luck, and congrats on passing your test!! :)
