Swimming Pools and Movie Stars

My dream home is not your typical dream home. I'm not one for big McMansions. I like little charming cottages with lots of character. I don't need a lot, just a comfy little space to make all my own. But there is one thing I've always wanted in with a house... A SWIMMING POOL!

The typical response I get to my pool desire are these:
You think you would want one but you would never use it
They are hard to maintain
They are expensive

I get all those things... But something in my heart just leaps for joy whenever I see a swimming pool. It never fails. They take my breath away. I realize the cons of a pool, but my pros are so extensive. I love the water, even just to look at it. I love being in water, even just to float. This is meditation and relaxation for me. Someday I would like a pool. Someday.

And Now i have one more thing I would like in my dream home:

Built-In Beds!


They just so look so cozy and inviting! I could imagine myself curled up, reading a book and then falling fast asleep with a summer breeze coming from my window.


Here is one for my guests



One for my daughter


And built in bunk beds!


If you could have anything in your "dream home" what would it be?

I agree about the pool. And I too love old brick homes, with lots of charm. And renovations, of course.

Right now, I would just be happy for two bathrooms!!

You! For a visit, anyway. We have VERY similar tastes! (I have always loved the built in bed idea, too, and I prefer a cozy house to a big one) I grew up with a swimming pool and it was wonderful. I am not sure if my parents thought it was so great but I don't think they regret it. They always knew where their kids were during those long summer days AND we weren't bored and bugging them all day long. We were getting our exercise.

Where are the movie stars? Katie where are you?

My dream house features? Brady Bunch house--just copy it and I'm good to go! :-)

Right now I would love a laundry room on the main floor and a door on my front closet and.....the list goes on.

Our neighbors have a pool and use it ALL THE TIME! My sister has a pool too--and if they could, they would be swimming in it now! If you enjoy the water and being outside--it is kind of relaxing to do some of the cleaning--and if you can't stand it, they have companies that will come out and do it for you! I bet all those people who say you would never use it would be the first ones to come a knockin' on your door--just stoppin' by--and lookin' to swim! :0)

I would love to have just another bathroom in our house! One isn't enough and will be not so fun once the kids get older. Oh well--you make due with what you got.

I love the built in beds! Anything to create more space!!!!!

I want a breakfast nook thingy in the kitchen of my dream home. And then I'd invite you over. For oatmeal. :)
