RandomAnthony | 14536 comments If you could add anything to your place of residence, what would you add?

I'm not a McMansion person, but I'd love a library in my house...an office/library, really, with those cool rolling ladders to reach high shelves, and a big desk where I could write and access goodreads.

I'd also like an outdoor room/space where my kids aren't allowed. We have a gazebo but within twenty minutes of warm weather it's taken over by children with army men and water balloons.


P.S. Water balloons rock.

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments probably a big family room with a fireplace and lots of seating. now that my kids are growing up and getting married we now wish we had a bigger space for all of them (plus anticipated grand babies)to come back and be with us. we can make do with our small current space but a bigger room would be better

janine | 7715 comments i want that library too, but i´ll add big comfy chairs and a fire place. for now i would be happy with just an extra room though, and heating in the bathroom.

Sarah | 13815 comments A pool and a spot in the yard with better light for growing veggies and a room more conducive to music & writing.

message 5: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) I need closet space. Mucho closet space.

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments For all your fancy outfits?

message 7: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Yeah I have to stuff all of my tuxedos under the bed now.

smetchie | 4034 comments A screened porch with nice protection from the elements and a big smooshy couch for napping.

A window over the kitchen sink.

A fenced yard for the kids to play in.

A spare bedroom for guests so they don't have to use the fold-out.

Sarah | 13815 comments Oh! Closet space! I haven't had that for so long I forgot to even ask for it.

Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments I would love a sun room/library. I would bask in the sun like a cat, and read until I dozed off. :)

message 12: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments that is my second choice jackie

message 13: by Misha (new)

Misha (ninthwanderer) Definitely a library. I mentioned in another thread I'm thinking of turning my small extra bedroom into one, but I'd love a real one with a fireplace and a ginormous wood desk and rolly ladders like in an English manor house.

My dream house has a library, spacious gourmet kitchen, heated indoor lap pool and a view of the ocean. I think I'll buy a lotto ticket on the way home tonight.

I don't think I'd ask for much. A sunroom/enclosed porch on the south side of the house would be nice. And a bigger bathtub.

I'm with you I want a housekeeper. I'll revise that to a "housefairy", 'cause you have to do too much work for a housekeeper.

Guest bedroom with ensuite bathroom.

message 18: by FabulousRaye (new)

FabulousRaye Another bathroom. I don't know if this counts, but I'd also want a micro-house in my backyard.

message 19: by Barb (new)

Barb A big 'ol screened in porch, leading to a big 'ol fenced in back yard - which would include an inground pool.

message 20: by Kristina (new)

Kristina | 136 comments A garage with an extra room above it.

message 21: by Mary JL (new)

Mary JL (maryjl) | 250 comments An office/library with one more item--in one corner a large table for our card playing group with comfly chairs and a fancy games table.

Also, a hot tub!

message 22: by Barb (new)

Barb There would definitely be a hot tub attached to my pool! I love hot tubs more than I can say.

message 23: by smetchie (new)

smetchie | 4034 comments I still just want a screened porch. SO BAD!

Actually, Larry, smetchie's right. Her wanting is not improperly done or wrong, it's just intense.

I'd like a wrap-around veranda, a library and I still want my 300 square foot bathroom with a ceiling-filled whirlpool tub, waterfall shower and skylight.

message 26: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Of course she's right. Of course she is. Who said she wasn't? Hmmmmmm? Who, I say?

message 27: by Jammies (new)

Jammies Yup, sock zombie time.

message 28: by Barb (new)

Barb He's coming for you Larry.

message 29: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Yikes!

message 30: by Jammies (new)

Jammies Barb, do you have a sock zombie? I have two!

message 31: by Barb (new)

Barb No - I just stole a picture of someone else's off of photobucket ... didn't even know they exist. This one's pretty cute.

There is NOTHING more fearsome than a sock zombie. I'm pretty sure one of them was the Cloverfield monster. *nods*

message 47: by Jammies (new)

Jammies Barb, everyone needs a sock zombie.

That said, one of the best things about Erin's website is the zombie interviews.

INTERVIEWER: So what do you do in your free time?
ZOMBIE: I really enjoy bungee jumping.
INTERVIEWER: Oh yeah? I wouldn’t have thought you were big into extreme sports.
ZOMBIE: Oh, I don’t actually jump—I just hang out at the bottom with my fingers crossed. Sometimes those things break. Free lunch, you know?
