In the new year, we plan on building our first home. It’s a very exciting time in our lives as we’ll be going from our first home, where our children were born and the place they have always known, to the house where we plan on living until the kids move out of home. It’ll be our 20 year house.
We’ve been to a few housing display villages to look at what designs are current. It’s very exciting to look inside these houses and dream… dream that this is my house… without all of the mess that we manage to make on a regular basis.
I especially love how the houses are styled. Love, love, love gaining inspiration and ideas. Here are some photos I snapped this morning… just because.
For me, the main priorities in deciding which house we will build, will be the kitchen (it must be large and preferably with a large walk in pantry), the sewing room (with good light and plenty of space for shelving and perhaps my quilting frame) and the size of the bedrooms.
If you were building a house, what would your priorities be?
