Thanks for the info Urmaniac. I've honestly never heard of him before... I just assumed he was an architect, for example, when we talk about Adam-style fireplaces or homes, it's after the Scottish architect family!

I hear you Piccolina! Alix and I spent part of our honeymoon at an incredible bed and breakfast on Galiano Island (one of the Gulf Islands between Vancouver Island and the mainland).
It think it's probably the most beautiful place I've ever been too. We fell in love with the house, and vowed to buy it when we win the lottery.
It's nestled on a cliff overlooking the water....surrounded by arbutis (SP?) trees.
(Ask Alix about her hammock episode some time! )

I choose other. A house filled with love and laughter is all I need. =) All that other stuff is just for show.

man, zereh's a tough act to follow on this one.

i really can't pick one. i have always wanted a house in florida, on the west coast near the gulf, and a house in vermont, in the mountains.
i have the property in florida to build on someday, so now i have to work on vt. we almost bought a condo in the killington grand a few years ago.

i would also love to have a lake house in near my dad's childhood home in co. leitrim, ireland. i met the current owner of the house my grandfather built, and if his kids aren't interested, i have first dibs on buying it.
