Dream Home

Our question of the night at dinner the other night was chosen by Chance:

If you could live anywhere, where would you live, and what kind of home would it be?

So, we go around the table answering the question. Colton has usually come up with a really good answer for last night's question, and has trouble focusing in the current night. I think once we're done, his mind just keeps turning, so that he'll have a great answer for the next night - forgetting that the next night the question will be different.

So, at first, Colton wanted to tell someone he would trade places with and why. Then, we got him to understand the current question, and he decided he would build a cabin, with 3 or 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms - well, maybe 6 bedrooms, but still 2 bathrooms. And, he wants to build it where Granny's cabin is now, because he likes to camp there.

Matt talked about living in Alaska, near a mountain lake. A log cabin set on lots of acreage, with a long winding driveway so you can't see the house from the road.

Heather wants a log home in Montana - maybe on Flathead Lake. Mountains, trees, and water are the three requirements. The home will have a huge kitchen, double-ovens, room for lots of guests, a looooong jacuzzi tub, and many other amenities.

Chance wasn't specific about his type of home - it would be two stories, have 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms - wait, make that 5 bathrooms - that way each bedroom could have a bathroom, and guests could have their own, so when you are visiting in the living room you wouldn't have to use one of the bedroom bathrooms. He decided he wanted to live in Oregon - when Matt asked why Oregon, he said - then I wouldn't have to pump my own gas!

Where would you live, if you had your druthers and the money to do so, and what kind of house would it be??

I absolutely love the picture of the dream home. We always thought we'd build a home and get a swimming pool, but neither of those things happened. Now my dream home is simple....a home with no mortgage!

Oh dear. Colton and I have the same problem. This is going to make me think a bit.

I love the question and answer session at the table, Heather. Where do you get your topics?

Ditto to mortgage would be a piece of heaven.

So, we just moved from WA to OR about three months ago and we thought that it would be annoying to not be able to pump our own gas, but since it's winter, it's actually kind of nice. Just stay away from busy Costco, you have to wait what seems like 4-ever! Our local small town gas station is really quick though! That's really neat that you have such fabulous converstaions at the dinner table!
