Building Our Future House

Building a Dream Home

I’ve purchased 2 homes in my life.  One West Coast. One East Coast.  Loved the homes as a whole.  Would’ve love to combined elements from each into one.

I told my bride that I think we should build our next home.  Have the ability to put into one home all the things we want in a home.  We’ve looked at many homes in our new town, and always have the wish of combining certain elements of all the homes into one.  So, we’re gonna think about it.  Think about what we want in a home.

Rather than going to a builder initially, we’re going to collect ideas.  Start our “ideal home” file.  Architectural Digest is my favorite magazine – pages will be torn out and collected.  It’s going to be lofty as we collect images of ideal kitchens and baths, materials of interest and intriguing layouts and desirable architectural features.  One day (who knows when), we just may find a way to combine all those elements into one home.

We’ll keep you updated on the pages we collect.
