    Default Experimenting. Wanna be my guineapig?

    Answer a few questions. And I'll come up with something.

    Imagine an imaginary house. YOUR imaginary house!

    Now, describe how many floors are in it. How many rooms, and each room.

    Also how many people live there.

    And the yard, if there is one, fence [or lack there of], and other things.

    Then I'll return and make an interpretation.

    Are you an architect or a Realtor or something?

    I'm actually in the middle of house shopping...

    My ideal house has 1 floor or possibly a game room/study loft... from the front door you see a distinct foyer where people can be invited into the house without actually being invited into the living areas. There is a short hall that leads to two arch way openings one on the left and one on the right. These are the formal living and dining, though the formal living will be more like a library and the formal dining is a place to host dinner parties and whatnot. It would be nice if there were a butlers pantry between the formal dining room and the kitchen but not required. Just beyond the archway into the formal living room is a door that leads to a half bath. Then the hall ends and you walk into the great room. The kitchen on the left (the kitchen and formal dining share a wall), the breakfast area beyond the kitchen and the family room on the right. Between the breakfast area and the kitchen is a small hallway that leads to the master suite and a door that goes to the utility room/garage. Through the family room is another hall that leads to the secondary bedrooms (2 or 3). If there are stairs along the wall where the half bath is to go to a game room/loft, I'm sure my family would appreciate that. The back of the house is covered with windows and french doors that open to the pool (which has to have a fence) and the swing set and other backyard kids stuff. Behind the master suite and beside the house, is my garden with a hot tub (french doors into the master) and a kitchen garden wraps around the corner of the house.

    3 people would live there for sure (Myself, SO and daughter) though it could be up to 8 at times (4 step-children for visitations and I would like to have another child).

    There would be a wrought iron fence around the pool that is separate from the wood privacy fence around the back of the property. The front could have some of the normal suburbia stuff like a lone tree circled by rocks, a drive way to the garage and a stone path to the front door.

    I'm not sure what else is relevant... my dream kitchen has 2 dishwashers (the machines, I don't like people enough for hired help) and I have to have a large pantry because I tend to keep enough groceries on hand to survive a nuclear winter.

    So, what's your prediction?

    Interesting. There's a home i always picture when talking to friends, but i don't know if it would be my ideal imaginary home. I don't really think about all of the fixings that would be in a place because i prefer being a bit more realistic about it than not.

    So what i tend to envision:
    One story house.
    When you open the door, there is dark carpeting for a few feet, then a deep red couch facing to the right. It is far off of the wall to allow a path behind it. In front of it is a dark coffee table and a television against the opposite wall.
    To the right is the kitchen. There's a doorway, but no door. I imagine a low wall on the far right side so you can see into the kitchen/carry on conversation, but it is still somewhat separate. A counter and stove/oven is visible. The refrigerator is at the far end, opposite the side of the wall the TV is against. Cabinets line the other side of the kitchen.
    Further down is the dining room. There is an open doorway leading to it from the kitchen. It is basic and casual. I imagine a lighter colored floor. There's another door leading to a small hallway on the immediate left of the dining room.
    The hallway travels down from the living room and out to a patio. There is a small yard that is generally tidy, yet barely utilized. It's surrounded by a dark picket fence that has vines growing through the rungs.

    Back at the start, the left wall has a few paintings strewn about. If you walk behind the couch you come face-to-face with the door to a medium sized guest bedroom. (That hallway to the outside is on the right of this room). It is also casual and barely utilized.
    To your left is a hallway. The next door down on the right is a small/medium sized laundry room with a stand alone washer and dryer.
    The one following that is the bathroom. It is fairly big for a bathroom, but there isn't anything fancy about it.
    On the left of the hallway is the master bedroom. I'm not sure what that would entail. Me-related things without a lot of complication. A desk for a computer/laptop. Queen bed likely on the left wall.

    It would be my domain mainly, but open to friends to stay for periods of time if need be. No one else that's permanent, i don't think.
    Am i missing any key home elements? :p

    I had a vision once.

    5 floors up, 4 floors underground.
    1st floor was the entertainment and kitchen area, 2nd floor the bedrooms, 3rd floor the Games rooms, 4th floor the theater, 5th floor the observatory.
    1st underground room the computer and science lab, 2nd underground room the library, 3rd underground room the music studio and art room, 4th floor the stockpile in case of disaster room. Then a pool, greenhouse, a sprawling garden, solar panels, a few guest houses, a wine cellar and a tennis court.
    How many people lived there, lots, totally unrealistic but hahaha that was when I was 10 or something.

    Now I just want a 5 bedroom, 2 bathroom house with a kitchen, lounge, dinning, study, exercise room, patio and recreation room. 5 people can live here and bring on over whoever they want.

    I also thought of wanting a safe house where friends could go to get away and unwind and relax from the stresses of life, like a hotel and relaxation center except it was free of charge if money was a non issue.

    ok so my IMAGINARY house...

    Ground floor is a bakery shop of some sort.
    1st floor up is a living space with a little kitchen, and a living space with a nice baby grand piano. Bathroom connects to the living space.
    2nd floor up, is 2 small bedrooms and a little balcony that overlooks the street in front of the shop.
    Basment floor 1 is half bread storage and half recreation room.
    Basement floor 2 is my secret laboratory and a good fall out shelter.

    its a really cute place.

    My imaginary house.

    It would be relatively small. Of chinese design. It would be situated on top of a rocky hill. Wouldn't say mountain, no icy tops, nothing too high. But fairly decent size. Decently hilly, with rock faces, and lots of green. The house would be on the sun side of the mountain, 50 feet from the top. It would have one floor. There wouldn't be many appliances. All the basics to live comfortable and healthy. There would be three rooms. The largest, living room. Would be open on the front side. Air flowing directly through the room. It would be spacey, soothing. One would be the bedroom. The walls are transluscent, so that the morning light will shimmer through the walls. But it will be wind proof. So it is not drafty. It's also spacey. The third room will be messy, there will be a comfortable place to sit, and a desk. A computer and a fast internet connection. The desk will be messy, disorganized. And the floor is littered with clothing. I will be the only person living there. And there will be a limit on how often I can be visited. And I can not be visited unannounced. The yard will be my mountain. There will be wild goats and deer roaming about, and on the next mountain, a wolf pack lives, howling at the full moon each month. Not too far from the house will be a small pond. Teaming with life. The sound of crickets will be a common event, and the occasional frog does his singing as well. The trees will be filled with the most beautifully colored birds. With soft, perfect songs. Whispering through the wind.

    That would be my imaginary house.

    Small detached house, think walls and windows (so I don't have to worry about waking anyone up at 3am), on a quiet street, within walking distance of work, the shops and my friends :3

    Now, describe how many floors are in it. How many rooms, and each room.
    1 floor, lounge, bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, study

    Also how many people live there.
    JUST ME

    And the yard, if there is one, fence [or lack there of], and other things.
    Preferably no yard, wouldn't want to maintain one. Black metal fence, so I wouldn't have to paint it.

    Pale, sandy brown with a black roof. Wraparound porch. Fluorescent green door guarded by a Venus flytrap plant. White futon on the porch, usually with a book sitting on it. Three tennis courts on the other side of the house (one clay, one hard, one grass).

    Quote Originally Posted by Chimerical View Post

    Only one floor, along with a much larger basement, in case of storms. The first floor has a small kitchen with a white tiled floor, a special-occasions-only dining room with a huge window and silvery-blue walls, a bathroom, and my bedroom. The bedroom is the smallest room in the house, holding just a canopy bed with an antique oak dresser underneath. There is a window with a nice view of the mountains. It has spring green walls and a white carpeted floor.

    The first room after you take the stairs down to the basement is a living room. It has a silver 42-inch TV (in homage to A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) and and every Nintendo system other than the Virtual Boy. There is also a DVD player, and a wall and a half covered from top to bottom with shelves of video games, DVDs, CDs and vinyls, but mostly CDs and vinyls. The TV takes up another wall, and there are two couches sitting in front of it. There is a Slurpee machine next to the TV. At the wall opposite the TV you see a desk with three laptops and an iPod on it. Next to the computers is a door to a bathroom. In the center of the unoccupied space there is a foosball, an air hockey and a pool table.

    (I just read over that and it confused myself, so I'll clarify: When you walk in, the wall you are facing is completely covered with shelves. If you turn left, you see another wall, the left half covered by the door and the computers, the right half covered by the rest of the shelving. If from there you make a full 180 around you see the backs of two couches, and a TV on the wall along with the Slurpee machine. The rest of the space is taken up by the game tables.)

    There is also a door to the right-hand side of the entry door which leads to a room filled with every musical instrument I can think of.

    Every door in the house is bright orange.

    Just me, and possibly my best friend, or my parents, but not both at the same time.

    No front yard or fence, but as I mentioned above the backyard is simply three tennis courts. The courts have two-metre fencing all around.

    edit: I take it back: My Imaginary House is no House.

    My dream house would be in the middle of the woods. Not too far from civilization, but enough to not have any close neighbors.

    Three floors- a basement, a ground floor, and a second floor.

    Well, I guess a kitchen, open living room/hall and bathroom on the first floor. Lots of open windows.

    Bedrooms and bathroom on the second floor, and a spiral staircase to the roof. The roof is flat and is a great place to be on warm summer nights.

    A study/library/computer room in the basement. A large open room with couches and chairs and a fireplace would be nice, too. Maybe even a bar.

    The house would be very futuristic. Lots of windows, very simple, and not boxy like a New England cottages.

    A small yard would suffice, because we'd be in the middle of the woods. Maybe a garden, a small patio, or a hot tub.

    Very simple, secluded, and comfortable.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
