Re: What features do you wish your house had?
We are seriously considering building soon. We are planning on downsizing. Right now we live in about 2000 sq ft and want to size down to no more that 1000 sq ft. We want 1 room for each child and one for us, not big either as bedrooms are just for sleeping. Then there will be a kitchen, dining, living room. One room for all 2 purposes....no walls separating at all. The south wall of this 'room' will be a passive solar design. We are thinking of building a straw bale house with radiant flooring. There will be 1 bathroom...but a strange one lol. From the master you can access one side which will be a sink and toilet. Then from the living area you will be able to access the other side...another sink and toilet. In the middle (accessed from either of the toilet rooms) will be a big bath/shower shared by the 4 of us. We want a yard with a little bit of grass and at least 1 big shade tree. We have a long driveway and want to line it with fruit trees. We want to build a unattached garage/workshop that will be about the size of a 2 car garage. Ah, dreams lo
