Same thing bringing it back in *sob*

    I've always dreamed of having a laundry that had benches and shleves, just like it was actually part of the house. My laundries have all been inside but they are really built second rate and are tiny. I'd love to have enough room to store the ironing board and actually iron and fold clothes in the laundry too! *sigh*

    DA - I also have a thing for older homes although my logic tells me their upkeep and renovation costs will be far higher. Still though, it is the character that I am attracted to and so when we look for new homes, we always go for homes that have several sub levels or are in some way different. We are currently perusing the market again for our final move.

    I hate square and blocklike homes..... like in many new housing estates where all the houses are almost identical and there are not trees, the land is as flat as and it is so pristine and boring.

    Yes, I agree. They all look the same and if one was inebriated I don't think they'd know which one was theirs. Lol.

    The place we built was lovely, but wasn't me. We spent a fortune on landscaping, yet I knew I would be loooong dead before they would EVER grow into big trees that I could sit under with a book and while away my days when I get older. I honestly believe we purchased this home (our last) for the block, position etc, definately not the house. And when i walk outside and look up at the trees, some of which have been there for 100 years, then i know I am home. Sounds corny, but ...

    Worse than new housing estates is the ones who try to be 'creative' and 'unique' and end up looking like a bunch of children's shapes stuck together with some windows punched in.

    LOL.... Our house is nice but Its only 10 yrs old... Nice property at the end of our court on the top of the hill... Plenty of room for the pups and a huge reserve behind us...

    We are redoing the front as the previos owners did nothing with it and it was over grown with weeds... Only 2 trees on the whole block so we are adding fast growing trees

    Usual dreams, new house, new cars, a sailing boat, travel. Charity-wise I would support overseas rainforest-conservation and here in Oz, fenced-off feral-free land for native animals, there was a group doing this but I forget what they're called.

    1. House with a large property, preferably rural
    2. A store or commercial building to start a dog fitness gym in. I'd run programs for dog and human fitness, organize cani cross races, etc.
    3. Travel

    The rest would probably go into savings.

    1. Pay off the mortgage and then buy a new, really big place straight out.
    2. Send mum and dad around the world.
    3. Buy my MIL a house.
    4. Buy my brother a house.
    5. Go on a holiday (with the furkids).
    6. No doubt hubby would want some sort of flash car.
    7. Invest it, so we'd always be rich lol.
    8. Donate stacks to charity - Cancer Council, RSPCA, etc etc.
