What would be on the Yes/No lists for your next house or major remodeling job?

I live @ home but If I could manage my own house,etc .. I often have said to myself I would do this

1) Keep the same nice wood windows and siding the house had on it since the 80s.. (Not this ugly plastic crap people are putting on now)

2) Keep GOOD applicances...NOT THIS STAINLESS STEAL CRAP which is ugly and doesnt work as well.....

3) Keep everything different colours (Dark,etc) Not all white which looks bland and gross......

4) Try to keep my house as good looking as I could from BEFORE THE TIME that in my opinion the world died.. (The 80s)

5) Keep good bathroom stuff (Traditonal looks,feel,fixures,etc)

The first floor laundry room was one of the main selling points for our current house. We have a basement, but the laundry room is on the main floor. It's so much more convenient.

Bigger Closets and more closets, and a larger laundry room. It would be nice to have a media/computer room for myself and a separate den/media room for my husband, so I don't have to hear all those sport shows he watches. Our house is brick which I really like, so I'd keep the brick.

I'd love to have a huge library with built in bookcases, bigger closets with lights that come on when you open the door and my own personal bathroom (no husband, no kids, no guests).

Funny, people always ask for bigger closets and more closets but if your closets are bigger your rooms are smaller. No one seems to realize this.

Plus with bigger closets you would just hang onto old clothes you don't wear more right ? Instead of bundling them up and donating them to Goodwill I would think?

We live in a really small old fashioned type place and that is a big reason I periodically give away old unwanted clothing, lack of closet/drawer space!

Large, walk-in closets (I do not mind a smaller bedroom to accommodate a larger closet space)

Mid-Century style living room with high ceilings, thick carpeting in an earth tone (preferably a dark brown)

A lot of windows (I love natural light)

HUGE, and I mean HUGE jacuzzi sized tub in master bathroom

A medium sized backyard filled with flowers & vines: roses, African Daisies, Morning Glories. For trees, shaded Eucalyptus and my favorite Blue Jacaranda (which blooms every late-spring).

That is pretty much my answer. I also don't like a lot of white. Some stainless steel I don't mind, but not excessive amounts.

I would add one more... a Halloween room!

We're living in our next house The house we live in now, the wife and I made sure that this was the house we wanted to spend the rest of our lives in. No more moving, we moved many many times since we've been married from apartments to duplexes, to houses, but finally no more rentals! We've been saving since we got married to get the house we wanted. We we're fortunate in finding a house that pretty much had everything on our list we wanted- location (same school district so our daughter wouldn't have to change schools though now she's away at college, but we're still close to some of our family that live out here, and away from a lot of neighbors, we have neighbors but there's enough space between them you never have to worry about nosy or noisy neighbors. Close to the mountains and woods since we love going hiking and camping)
I got my big garage, and a basement to keep all my movie collection/plus it's my computer room, hate the term but it's my man cave. My wife got her big kitchen, big closet, big laundry room, and home office/sewing room.
Big yard, was the other plus. The main thing now is the wife wants a green house, so that will be one of our future projects.
And yes we hate white walls too, so we have various colors through out the house.





And we do get some neighbors we don't mind dropping by unannounced .

I'd buy property somewhere or use the property my grandpa has and rebuild the house he used to own until his death!

And since the property he has has a high-water level in the foundation...it would look something like this...


Is there a way a high-water foundation can keep the house standing still?
