Dream House

Jendi asked, "What is a feature that your dream house would have to have in order to be your dream house?"

I started thinking about that and just got on a roll. It's addicting. So hop over to Jendi's Journal and leave your answer, make your own list on your blog, or just chime in here. Here's my off-the-top-of-my-head, but didn't-spend-a-lot-of-time-thinking-about-it list.

  1. lots of windows - I love light
  2. a morning room with (shock) lots of windows, including a bay window with a window seat
  3. a library with cushy seats
  4. a rose garden
  5. big trees with at least one good climber
  6. moving water outside, preferably a small creek
  7. streets around it (or a big driveway) good for riding bikes and sidewalks for walking (unless, of course, it was an estate with walking/biking trails)
  8. a fireplace
  9. a big porch with a porch swing
  10. a master bathroom
  11. a guest room - I really miss mine (three kids, 1 boy and 2 girls + 3 bedroom house = no more guest room)
  12. a flat top stove - it was one of the only things I liked about our fixer-upper house when we bought it and I would hate going back to a regular range

It sounds wonderful! Do you think God will build something like that for us in Heaven?

There's nothing on your list that I wouldn't want to have. :)
