I would love a 4 or 5 bedroom place with 2 or 3 full baths and 1-2 half baths. Master bedroom with en suite bathroom- no tub needed though, just a luxury shower. 2 brs for the kids, 1 br for guest and maybe one for DH's office. But if we had the on site barn that I want, he could use the heated upstairs for his work space.

Then I want a gourmet kitchen with 6 burner gas range and big ol pantry. Dining room, family room (with fireplace) and parlor or smaller room where the piano could go. I do NOT want open concept- blech. I'd love a sunroom that I could watch storms roll through and then a farmer's porch in addition to a big deck.

1-10 acres with lots of room away from the road and mature trees. The barn can be just a barn or our garage. No tandem parking any more! I want at least one car interior parking and space for the bikes and stuff.

I'd be cool with an in-law space too. Something that the kids could use as a playspace for now and then a set of parents could move in.

Hmmmm, what would I love? Since the number of kids keeps growing, it's kind of hard to say how many bedrooms for sure, but I would like enough bedrooms to have at least one guest bedroom, which we do not have now. Or at least enough room to put a guest bed in one of the kids' bedrooms. I wish we had a big front porch. I like the area that we live in and the amount of land, but I wish we were further back from the road. I would also love to have a pool. We had one growing up, and I miss that! I would also like a kids' play room/in-law suite over the garage. Of course, if I had enough money to have everything I wanted, I would also have enough to hire a landscaper so that we'd have lots of trees and plants since neither hubby nor I are good at yardwork.

I'd prefer a large lot, but in a subdivision, in city limits. This part, we actually have (5 acres in a subdivision).

Ideally I'd like 5 bedrooms, to allow for more overnight guests. And plenty of bathrooms. A large laundry room, where I can leave my ironing board up all the time, and maybe have a couch & tv in there for when I'm folding laundry. I'd put the laundry room in a location central to the bedrooms, like ours is now. Definitely a large kitchen, with a large walk in pantry. Lots of Windows. At least a 3 car garage, and a separate shop for DH. A fireplace. A window over the kitchen sink that looks out over the back yard.

I'm sure there's more, but that's what I can think of right now.
