As I said in one of my previous post, it's time to think small.

I've been very successful in real-estate so please allow me to share some of my wisdom with you. If you purchase a house regardless of whether it's your "Dream Home" or not be sure to buy in an location with top-notch schools. Those areas tend to hold their value better than any other as people are always willing to pay a premium to send their children to the best schools.

unfortunately my wife and I are far away from buying a house, we are renting from the local council so hopefully a swap will be on the cards. Something is in the pipeline so fingers crossed for that. :yeah:

This is always subject to change but today my dream home would be a 1,300 square foot rancher in the great State of New Hampshire.

I'd like to build the house from scratch and employ some form of radio frequency shielding material as a wrap. Here in the United States, builders use a DuPont product known as Tyvek to wrap homes to protect against air and water intrusion. It's my belief, based on extensive research, that we also need protection from spurious radio frequencies as the medical community is finally starting to cite the potential health risks humans face by being constantly bombarded with radio waves. Here's a fascinating link if you'd like to learn more.

When I was up in the North Carolina mountains earlier this year I absolutely fell in love with this place.

It's so beautiful and rustic while at the same time being thoroughly modern. :wub:

Great seeing you're still here too, Cabanon! :yeah:

That house is indeed very lovely and it's in part of NC that I really like. It's not too far from Appalachian State University and also close to the resort town of Blowing Rock. Those two things sort of give the area a funky bohemian vibe. There's also an excellent Mexican food restaurant nearby. :lol:

The Deafheaven song Dream House???

If you enjoy metal, check out their albums Sunbather (Sunbather & The Pecan Tree in particualar) and New Bermuda (Baby Blue & Brought to Water) - very atmospheric, wall-of-sound, great guitar, post-rock-esque build-ups, beautiful non-distorted parts that ebb and flow in pretty organically.

Here in the United States we had a "tiny house" movement for a while. Initially the thinking was that tiny houses (800 square feet or less) would be more environmentally friendly and more affordable. However, just like everything else in the U.S. the tiny house movement was co-opted by commercial interests and ultimately lost its focus. :-/

This video gives an idea of what the tiny house movement was at its best.

Tiny? Maybe it's because I've lived in hoarder houses and trailers my whole life but if my first house was as nice as that one I would never want to move again. It amazes me how many big homes I've seen where the space is filled with nothing valuable. I guess it's because I don't have money to buy a big place but 800sqf ft seems like so much I couldn't fill the space if I tried

At the end of the day, tiny houses really aren't very practical when you factor in the price of land and everything involved in properly disposing sewage. Ultimately, apartment living makes much more sense which is probably why South Korea seems to be structured around that living arrangement for a major part of its populace.

BTW, when I was a kid growing up I was fascinated with Japan. I loved everything about Japanese culture (especially its classical architecture) and that love only grew as video gaming became my main hobby. Nowadays, however, I'm obsessed with South Korea and for the life of me I can't exactly figure out why. :lol:

My dream house just needs to be decent for a few Cats and have a Solar Roof and a few Tesla battery packs so that it's comfortably off the grid and on sustainable energy 🐈🐈🐈🐈😎

South Korea is pretty cool.
A mate of mine moved there.
Seemed like a good Korea move!

Mine would be a log cabin mansion with a huge arcade and a huge hot tub pool combo. It would be more in the country because I am a simple guy

Yeah, I'd love a log cabin. I just love natural wood. So warm and homey. Gotta have a nice big shop to work on projects! And preferably no cell service available. Haha.

Never ceases to amaze me how many people want rustic homes like log cabins rather mega mansions. All I know is that my dream home has to have a video gaming man cave where I can enjoy newer stuff like the PS4 on an HDTV as well as retro on a proper CRT. I'm somewhat bummed out now because my current residence doesn't afford me the room to plug up my Dreamcasts (I own both a North America and Asian console) so I can play favorites like Frame Gride and Tech Romancer which as far as I know haven't been ported to modern systems yet.

I find myself watching tv shows and movies and saying, I want my house to look like that!

I love the layout of the classic Mary Tyler Moore show apartment but id want the overall style to be more like Frasiers minus all the African statues (nothing against Africa, I just prefer Asian statues). Also after watching Sunset Boulevard id love a projector screen behind a painting that I could pull up for movie/gaming nights :)

That being said, I am trying to think smaller since im still dreaming about Japan as an option.
