There are a lot of things on my list that are probably common to most dream houses. I want everyone to have their own space. I want to have room for guests to come visit. I want a large kitchen. I want a space just for art projects. I want a large yard for playing in and gardening.
I’ve not thought a lot about the specific design of a dream house, but I did think of one thing today. As Maxx was driving his toy cars through the kitchen I realized that it would be so nice to have at least one large, open space with hardwood floors. A space where I am not worried about what will be knocked over or run into. A place where we can send cars, balls, and other toys across the floor. A place where we can “ice skate” in our socks. A big room that is just for fun. That’s the kind of room I want in my house.
