    Mine would be a penthouse, something like this:

    It may not be as big and fancy as some, but it's got a magic meadow to frolic in. :)

    Wow, it fits in so well with its surrounding environment. :p


    Looks like something the Addams Family would live in!!

    I've heard of home with foyers; Homes with parlours, and sitting rooms. I've heard of hotels with a lobby, and museums have lobbies. I've never seen a house with a lobby...

    I'd take a house like this or this. The outside can look like a Craftsman Bungalow or be modern and concrete, I don't care.

    I've always enjoyed Frank Lloyd Wright's 'Falling Water'.

    Though the ceilings are far too low for me.

    I don't have one dream home in particular, however, I've always wanted a home in the Italian countryside (or better yet, this one) or a place on the beach, like one of these two. But I suppose if I have to live in the city, this Boston house will suffice (though I think I'd be doing quite a bit of redecorating).

    Those are very interesting homes above for sure, but I kind of like a small house with standard materials, and thicker walls like the house I am in now. If I had too much glass I would either freeze to death or unilaterally keep the Middle East rich paying heating bills.

    Unless I have a ton of kids, I don't see a need to go over 1,000 sq. feet, but part of that stems from me not being a pack rat anymore. If I don't use it, I give it away, recycle it, or if it's not worth anything to anybody, it goes in the trash.

    I used to need a big house, or more space, because I used to like to keep around large collections of "anything" like models/stamps/coins/store signs/neon signs/fishing nets/power tools, guitars lying all about the house, many Macs and PCs, and more furniture than I knew what to do with. It was pack rat central. Somewhere along the line, I really got sick of "stuff" and got into believing less being best. I use a Mac mini and that sums up my philosophy.

    My health got better because I was breathing in less dust, I don't miss the collections of junk, I play guitar much better because I stick to one instead of ten, and when I need a tool, I can find it and actually know how to use it. In my pack rat days, I wanted to get a really cool jack hammer and nail gun. :)

    Dream World: It's not your grandfather's theme park

    I've been thinking of building a few dream homes...

    Adding an administrative building for sales and vacation rentals...

    Along with the obligatory diner and convenience store...

    And hiring a hippie girl to handle camper rentals...

    it's certainly an interesting place to visit, but I found the constant sound of water to be a bit... distracting?

    my personal would be the Robie house if i were to choose a FLW design

    My dream home wouldn't be visible because of the 40 car garage-mahal I'd build to go with it.

    You would have to pee quite frequently I presume. Other than that, nice house ;).

    actually, amusingly while visiting there, I did use the bathroom 3-4 times.

    It's my goal to live in a house like this for when I retire, it's so unique and quirky... and underground.

    And I'd want it complete with Iron Man suit, Jarvis AI, the whole nine. (Female reporter optional.)
