Awesome you are going to build your house!

For me, my dream house has a lot of glass, a 25meter pool so I can train right at home .

What annoys me in current house? Bad distribution of space. And no insulation. Which sucks both for heat and because everything that happens outside you hear it inside -.-. So I want thick, insulated walls. And a very nice and safe backyard so the doggies and future little ones (hopefully) can play while being safe.

Mrs. Coyote:  currently we are renting. Saving up for a dream house. The city we live in is too expe sive to buy unless your making hundreds of thousands of dollars. 

But i do dream of my future homr and in it i hope to have to following:

1)  walk in closet – if i dont have a walk in closet, i plan to make one of the spare bedrooms a closet. My cousin did this and omg, it looks like a little boutique. You can literally go shopping in there

2) an amazing kitchen with an island

3) i would like to have a decent backyard to fit a nice sized pool

4) a basement (dorsnt matter if its finished or not, we can do the work)

Those are mt top things

Mrs. Coyote:  The most important part of our house will be a really nice outdoor space with a fireplace and lots of greenery. As for the inside of the house, our dream is to have TONS of windows and natural light, a beautiful fireplace in the living room and a really great master bath with a nice soaking tub. 

What we dislike about our current place is how closed off our kitchen is. We plan to have a very open floorplan. 

If you are building, the one experience I have from my sister’s house building is to REALLY think about outlet and light switch placement. Make sure it’s convenient 🙂

So exciting!!  Here would be my requirements…. we live in such an expensive area, this list is just a pipe dream for me.

  • many closets!  including a walk-in in the master
  • master bath with double vanities and a little separate room with the toilet
  • open floor plan for kitchen/living room/dining room
  • office
  • tons of kitchen cabinet space

Hmm.  I would have expected to be able to come up with more!

  • Wedding: October 2015

We just purchased our first home and so far I love almost everything about it. But for our next purchase…and this may sound strange….but….. I will pay more attention to the direction of the sun and our windows. This is hard to describe….we spend most of our time in the back of the house (only an office and garage at the front). And on the backside, two windows are shaded by patio overhang. So for most of the day, we lack natural light because the back is facing east. <br />Sounds like a really weird thing, but it bugs the shit out of me because I have lamps on at noon. <br />Dream house: large kitchen, tons of cabinet space, and tray ceilings (all of which this house has!)

Good luck on this exciting planning time!

DH and I have separate closets; I believe it has been a savior for our marriage. It was a major selling point in our house!

Counter space- our kitchen has very little so we’re doing a huge reno next summer so that we get our dream kitchen!

Wall space- open floor plans are fantastic and I love them, but I do worry a bit about having enough space for our furniture (shelving, china cabinet, etc). 

To that point- storage. We have 2 pantry closets (love them!)

For me, I really wanted my kitchen to look out to the backyard. There is a window above our sink that I love. I can imagine looking out that window watching my kids playing in the backyard (right now I’m just watching our dog:-)) And it’s easy to go out to grill.

This isn’t our dream home, but I love it!

Mrs. Coyote: 

-Walk master bathroom/closet area (my aunt has one and it’s literally half the size of our house…)

-Kitchen large enough to support an island, french door fridge with freezer on the bottom, stainless steel appliances and a bad ass oven.

those my wants for a dream house.

My needs in the current house I live in…we need a larger kitchen area, my husband and I can’t both be in the kitchen at the same time.  Nor can one of us get by if we open the fridge door.

Our master bathroom?  Smaller than the guest bathroom… and my husband is a giant, so everything is kind of mini sized to him.

our bedroom is down the hall from our daughters room (which I hate).

Mrs. Coyote: My dream house is a little ridiculous, but here goes lol:

-racquetball court

-heated salt water pool 

-hot tub

-sauna and steam room (love those)

-basic gym equipment

-flat lawn with no weeds

-no mosquitos

-screened in porches

-sunroom

-greenhouse

-manicured gardens

– French doors off of the master bedroom that leads to a screened in porch

-circular drive

-home theater

-bar

-double ovens

-steam showers

-loads of counter space and cabinets in the kitchen

-walk in dressing room

-6 bedrooms, 7 baths

lmao, I basically described my in-law’s house (one of them). A girl can dream right?

 

 

 

Current house needs more closet space and I would love to get our lawn re-sod.

Current home that shits me (also renting)

The mirror placement in the bathroom is chest height.  I mean seriously. 

No wardrobes

No pantry

No deck or cover in the back yard (important for my pets)

A very diggable yard (again pets)

Dream house! 

Would have a giant catary and shelving throughout the house for my cat. 

Would have a pond

Would have a well fenced back yard for the dogs

Would have an enclosed deck for guests in winter

Would be designed for FI gaming.cablea through walls instead of along the ground.  Extra power things in the walls. Large living room/gaming room for his dream set up.

Floor length mirrors in bedroom and bathroom. 

Separate bath and shower. 

Two floors ( not super common in aus and reminds me of my home in England)

High fences so people can’t see in a dogs can’t see out. 

Room size designed with my tanks in mind (fish and reptile) 

And also having a giant fish tank (min 6ft) somewhere. 

Theres more and I keep adding to it. But heavily made for my pets and his technology.
