It has always been a dream of mine to design and build my own home. I love the idea of planning every single personal detail, from the floor plan to the finishes.
Being only twenty years old, I haven’t quite had the chance to build my own home yet. I have, however, built many dream houses on The Sims (but obviously that doesn’t count.) There’s just something about building a dream home on The Sims that isn’t as exciting. Maybe the fact that it’s on a computer and I can’t actually live in it? Yeah…that’s it!
One thing I know is that if I ever get the chance to design and build my own home, I’m going to go crazy adding architectural details (wherever my budget allows, of course!). Board and batten, archways, box beam ceilings, built-ins, special doors…any of these things would be more than welcome to be part of my dream home.
And maybe, just maybe, an architectural detail like this will be incorporated somewhere in the design.
Because come on, who doesn’t want a top secret passageway in their house?!
Confess. What special architectural detail would you want in your dream house?
