|lots of bulbs for lots of light|
First off my house would be a single storey, no up and downstairs for me, thinking ahead to my old age here. It would be good size rooms without being to big to heat, but big enough to be spacious. My rooms would all have vacuum cleaners built into the walls, just a matter of stretching out the hose, no lugging a bulky machine, no bags to empty as they will hoover straight into my bin.
I would build in some nice safety features like smoke detectors that when they go off will activate machines that will suck the smoke out of the room, after all smoke kills more people than the fire. All my smoke alarms would be electronically linked to give as much warning as possible.
My heating would be the underfloor type, firstly as hot air rises seems daft to have it half way up your wall,and secondly no more cold feet or the need for slippers.
I would have four bedrooms, big enough for the family to visit but not too big that we will rattle around when we are just our two selves. All four bedrooms would have a toilet with two of them made en-suite. My en-suites would be wet rooms, offering nice spacious showers, and again looking towards my old age when I cant climb in or out of a bath or a shower. I would do away with the need for a towel for my body by getting big blow dryers put in, like you use for your hands only bigger. Would also put hand dryers in my toilets and kitchen as well. I would do away with conventional taps using sensor technology same as they have in the hospitals.
I appreciate there may be times of the year where you cannot get off the island due to the adverse weather, but I would be prepared for that with a basement type storage area that I could fill with tinned and frozen food. I would own my own boat so that I could leave the island when I wanted too and it would double up for hubby to use for fishing and a heliport would be essential for quick trips across to the mainland not to mention a nice 4 by 4 for leisurely driving around the place.
Hubby would like a cinema room with a huge big wrap around television, and he can watch films while I swim in my heated indoor swimming pool that I would have added on.
My swimming pool room would be made from glass that I could see out and watch what is happening but those outside could not see in.
Most importantly I would have a satellite broadband signal so I could still update my blog.
Right....guess I better start buying lottery tickets cos it wont happen any other way.
What would you like built into your dream home?
