I have a vision of my dream house in my head. It is mostly all on one level. On one end would be my bedroom and ensuite bathroom with shower stall and separate bath tub. The laundry room would be off my room somehow. On the other end of the house would be another bedroom with ensuite bathroom, probably with just a shower stall, and an attached sitting room with a little kitchenette. It would be for my Dad as long as he is well enough to be reasonably self sufficient. I don't mind doing his laundry or cooking for him but there is no way I'm doing any personal care.
Between the bedrooms would be the living areas - kitchen, dining room, living room, another bathroom with shower stall and a den with a double sized Murphy bed so I could use it as a spare room. I might have a loft area up above with more sleeping area for guests, maybe with a 2 piece washroom.
If I could go whole hog, I'd like it to be on the water, preferably a smaller lake so I can be out in my canoe or kayak and not have to worry about being run over by a speedboat or PWC. If I'm really dreaming, I'd like to own all the land around the lake so I can control the access and prevent any motorized boats at all. I might let someone troll with a little electric motor so they can fish my stocked lake. If I do get the water property, I'd also build a little self sufficient bunky with a couple of small bedrooms, small washroom, combined kitchen/living room. That way, I could invite friends to come enjoy my lake but we wouldn't have to spend every waking moment together. We'd have dinner together at the big house.
There would be a double car garage attached to the house and the property would be big enough for a large garden, maybe a chicken coop, maybe a goat pen. There would be a nice big deck with a screened in section for black fly and mosquito seasons. It would include a nice outdoor eating area.
