It's Fun To Dream!

Dr. Hubby and I love old homes. This is a mansion in the town where his office is located. It was built in the late 1800s and then redone in 1912. It even has a ghost story...or two. The third floor is a ball room. Underneath are tunnels to the courthouse and a couple other buildings, but most have caved in. This would be a dream home!

I would love to see the inside. Do you ever dream of the same location from time to time? A location that you have never been to? I dream of a home about 4-5 times a year for the last several years. The outside of the above home could be the one from my dreams. I spend most of my dream inside so that would really let me know if it was the same.

We are currently playing with the idea of buying a home in town. We could live there during the school year...and then stay on the farm in the summer! It's fun to dream....

What would be your dream home?

I love older homes with charm and character.

We have two mansions in our town. I would love to have one, but they recently sold for 3.2 million and 1.2 million, so I'll keep dreaming.

Living in a shack in the country would beat living in town.

It's fun to dream about a new home. I have a couple of dreams and they are completely opposite. One is a big house in the country. A house with a big front porch. The other is a spacious apartment in New York City in a charming neighborhood. I live smack in the middle of suburbia now...LOL...but I can dream.

I live in my dream home! It's nothing like the mansion above but it is where we raised our family and have made beautiful memories!! I know icky and sentimental but true :D

When I was younger I always thought it would be a fun project to buy a really old, antiquey home and fix it all up. Now the thought makes me tired - LOL!

I would love to have an old Farm house on some acreage with a big wrap around porch... kind of a hobby farm where I could have a big garden and raise some chickens...

I love that home!

And the idea of the home in the city for school year and the farm for the summer sounds awesome!

my dream home is a clean one that is paid for ;)

but I guess if I had to, I could make myself live in that one! I think Scarlett and Rhett's ghosts probbaly fight there nightly though. oooh!

P.S. If you do buy a house like this you totally need a butler!!! :)

My dream home is a cabin in or near the mountains. A place where the outside world stays far away and I can putter around with all of my many projects.

That home is beautiful!
We visited Coeuer D'alene, ID a few years ago, and I fell in love.
I want to live there someday, in one of the 100 year old homes on the lake.

I love old homes like that, and brand new homes with all the upgrades.
