Just for Fun Friday

If television is telling the truth, Alaska is the trendiest place in the world to live right now.

Remote Alaska specifically. And I have to admit that whenever I see it I think, yeah, I could live there. I could totally live without running water or a bathroom inside the house. For a day.

Remote Alaska isn’t for the faint of heart or the lazy. Or vegetarians. Of course I’m basing all of my generalizations on things I made up in my head and things I’ve seen on television shows. So I think we can surmise that it’s all very, very accurate.

Now, I know I’ll probably never move to Alaska, but the one thing I could see myself actually doing is moving to a farm. Just a small one with a couple of goats and a few more chickens. In fact I’m not sure how I got this far in my life without moving to a hobby farm. When I was in television a “psychic” told me she saw me living in a condo on the lakeshore in downtown Toronto. She was “psychicing” this observation based on the fact that I worked in television in downtown Toronto, and judging by first appearances I was a downtown/condo/hip and happening kind of gal. I was not. Never was and never will be.


I do love big cities and the look of the lifestyle. Swishing around a lofty condo, wine in one hand, art gallery flyer in the other. But it’s not who I am at my core.

I like art galleries and great restaurants and all those other things you find in big cities. I just like fields, streams and bales of straw more.

So today I’d like to ask you, out of curiosity. Where and what is your dream home?



Super-beautiful fence by Eden Design

Mine is an old stone farmhouse with a vegetable garden surrounded by a split rail fence on 4 acres. A gravel driveway so you can hear visitors arriving with the crunch of the road. One dog, two cats, 10 chickens and 2 goats.

Now you go …

And have a good weekend!

  1. Kathy Hartzell says:

    But that is my dream image!! With foxgloves and hollyhocks and nasturtiums, too, on the fence line.

  2. I kinda almost have my dream place. The house is a constant fixer upper and the yard needs a lot of maintenance but I wouldn’t change it for the world. I would change my tractor though!

  3. Kelsey says:

    I am sooooooo with you girl.

  4. SusanR says:

    My house and garden moved to Northern California. Fog and rain. Rural but an easy drive to San Francisco. Trees and greenery out of every window. A porch swing. A green house and a big barn. Lots more cats. And a huge deck with a wonderful telescope.

  5. Auntiepatch says:

    House on the beach at Del Mar or La Jolla CA. But I do like your farmhouse, too!

  6. Jamie Beth says:

    Ditto…but by the ocean, within walking distance of all the stores I need, and cool restaurants. Thats really all I need in life, pretty simple.

  7. victoria says:

    I love living in my craftsman in the center of Los Angeles. I have my vegetables, all i need right now are chickens. Sometimes I dream of living on a farm in Sweden, but then I go there and i realize why I dont…I need to be around people of all colors and walks of life. Living a farm life in the big city is my dream and my reality…now if i could just do something about the smog and the earthquakes…..

  8. West Coast Nan says:

    I’d like Lynn Knowlton’s house please, with the treehouse and the barn and that lovely kitchen. I’d move it to the BC coast because I’d like to be near the ocean… A dog and 2 cats and a nice garden would round out my dream house. Oh, and I guess my husband and 2 kids could live there too, if they behave.

    • Haha ! I was going to say the same thing. I think Karen should come and be my neighbour. The cost of living is super inexpensive, you have room for chickens and fields of green, and you can be in Toronto in 2 hours. NO TRAFFIC. Like ever πŸ™‚

      You can sleep in the treehouse until you are convinced πŸ™‚


  9. kris wilson says:

    Ditto, except I would add enough land to have a house for each of my three grown children on the same property (is that even legal?), cause we all share the same vision and love each other that much! O, and have you as our neighbour so we could borrow eggs! Happy one year anniversary, by the way, I second what everyone else has said about you, your strength and grace is an inspiration to woman everywhere.

    • Pati Gulat says:

      Yes, it IS legal cos me, my Mom and my sister all three do it….my brother just moved home and intends on putting a house on the property as well. πŸ™‚ <3 πŸ™‚

  10. kris wilson says:

    I meant ditto to your stonefarmhouse dream, not the designer one by the beach!

  11. Mary Werner says:

    Got my dream home when I was 25 – 10 acres, a couple horses, 2 dogs, 15 chicken sand I rooster, a goat, a wonderful cow named Molly, 3 pigs, and 5 turkeys. I had a big garden with over 100 tomato plants and plenty of wild blackberries for jelly and syrup. It really was a dream EXCEPT it was pretty expensive to upkeep, my husband was working so I got all the chores, I still loved it. Then – I needed to go to work to help with money, and it was downhill from there. Then it became a lot of work instead of fun. Fences to mend, tractor to keep running, weeds taking over, raising chickens is more expensive than buying them on sale. Then my husband died – never was sick but had a silent heart attack and was gone at 48. All the fun left and I built a home in town, went to work seriously, and have gotten new hobbies. I still really would love to be living on that little slice of heaven but right now my dream home would be right where I am – except with more flowers for the bees and butterflies. Miss the chickens the most – they talk so calm until they lay their egg. Then everyone had to celebrate. Karen go get your dream home NOW!

    • Diana says:

      Hi Mary,
      I know the problems with such a home. Our house was built around 1700 and everything had to be renovated. We did the main work ourselves to safe money. A small moat runs through the tiny garden, we rebuilded it over 3 years…
      If my husband wasn`t such a great craftsman I never ever would live in this house…It is his dream and I swear when I am 70y old I will still wear worksuits and kneel in a pit without any happyend!

  12. Carolyn says:

    A craftsman cottage on the shore in southern Maine, with lots of flower gardens around it. And a screened in porch so my kitty could enjoy the outdoors with danger. <3

    • Pat says:

      Ha, ha; after getting tired of outdoor dinners with mosquitoes and then as the season progressed the wasps, I stomped my feet and said, “We’re putting in a screened outdoor deck”. And then it happened. We love it. No one runs screaming from the table because those nasty wasps can’t find the bbq’d steaks / pork chops anymore. However, we tell everyone it’s a big outdoor cat enclosure so the coyotes don’t get our pets. It wasn’t cheap and we’re not well off, but we scrimped and saved and did most of the work ourselves.

  13. Janelle says:

    The older I get the more I am starting to realize that a dream house/property matters, but not as much as dream neighbours…the kind who phone you up on a random weeknight and ask if you’ve got supper started because they’ve made way to much sauce and then all you have to do is boil noodles and grab a bottle of wine and you’ve got yourself an impromptu potluck.

  14. Kat says:

    My dream home would be a small thatched cottage with the full-blown rose and herb filled cottage garden in England. There would have to be chickens and several cats and the village children would think I was a weird old lady. Or they might even wonder if I was a witch! Always potting around among the flowers and herbs, drinking tea and talking to my plants!! πŸ˜‰

    • Karen says:

      One of my best friends is a witch actually. And now that you mention it she does have several cats, plants and drinks tea, lol. ~ karen!

  15. Janelle says:


  16. Debbie says:

    My dream home is one that is near my children and hopefully, one day, grandchildren. All I want is enough space for sleeping bags for all and I will be happy.

  17. Mindy says:

    Mine is the same as yours. “Someday.”

  18. Raymonde says:

    My old stone house is my dream home. I share it with two adorable cats.
    I love it, but I would prefer to have a much bigger yard and less neighbours…
    I dream of winning the lottery and buying some of them out! πŸ˜‰

  19. Monica says:

    it wasn’t too long ago that there was a spate of shows about Texas. I wonder if state departments of tourism lobby for the advertising on cable…
    every single time I hear that one commercial about people house-hunting in Alaska where the woman says something like “I want rural, I want remote… ” I mentally add “I want no one to hear me scream when I’m attacked by a bear”
    No Alaska for me, thanks. I don’t want to live somewhere where the seasons are mostly (1) very very little sunlight and (2) mosquitos.

  20. Lin says:

    I’m with West Coast Nan…Lynne Knowltons place but moved to a lot overlooking the ocean on Vancouver Island. A couple of dogs, a couple of cats and a three chickens please….Karen can come visit anytime she wants and can help me do stuff or just kick back with her beverage of choice. Oh and maybe a garden…

  21. dana says:

    We rent. My dream home is one thats paid for, has windows that arent painted shut or cracked. It would also have a garage because where we park now is on the street where our cars rot awayi because of weather & have been vandalized with eggs 5 times. Maple syrup was poured on the windows & it ran thru the doors & into the street. I would love to have a couple of chickens, hardwood floors, bedrooms with doors, & more than 1 bathroom. My countertop space here is a butcher block in middle of kitchen thats 24″ x 24″. Thats the only countertop space i have. The views would be better in my dream home. My neighbor is pg so she just wears her pants lower so her crack hangs out. Summer isnt here yet & I have already seen enough.

  22. Valerie says:

    It is illuminating to find out what the stimulus is to propel a GIGANTIC change in a lifestyle. For some it may be a complicated affair, for others a simple happening. For me it occurred one day around 8:00 a.m. when I was in the inside lane on the Deerfoot Trail in Calgary about to go over the Calf Rope Bridge. Everyone in front of me and behind me was “aiming” their cars ahead at 100 km. an hour. My car went into a swerve ( no salt or sand on the highway, ever) and I ended up going sideways down the highway. Cars are not designed to move sideways. I did not end up in an accident but that evening I decided, enough of this crazy, stupid existence. Within one month I was in the interior of B.C. – the Kootanys. I purchased a completely run down log home on 40 acres. If anyone wants to do “stuff” this was the perfect arrival location. We heat ourselves with wood which we have a logging truck deliver and buck ourselves. I harvest from my garden. One summer I gardened completely nude (no neighbours around.) it was glorious. We have erected an outside shower from our own gravity fed spring (no chemicals/chorine etc.) to clean up under after a day of playing around in the dirt. We have our animals who are as much a part of us as our toe tails and spend summer evenings relaxing on our deck and in the winter cozied up in front of our fire in the living room. We read more now than we ever had the inclination or time to do living in the thriving metropolis. In spite of the truck load of my employment experience and expensive education, I accepted a great position at 1/3 the salary I made before and went through entirely, living in a big city. I now have savings because there is no where to spend money here except on essentials. Every time I went out in the car when I lived in a large city I spent money. Like the famous T shirt says “LIFE IS GOOD” and for me it is. It really is. I should have been here in my late teens but it was in my hard drive to have “life” experience before this change was really ready to occur within me.
    This is my dream home.
    If anyone reading this posting has even the slightest inclination to “change your reality” – move to a rural location. Do it before it is too late physiologically or psychologically for you.

    This is your one and only life.

    • Sheri says:

      Valerie, I hear you. I actually moved to Calgary from the Kootenay’s (Cranbrook) when I graduated, wanted the big city lights. Now I am older and wiser and would love to move back there, every time I go home to visit I feel a sense of relaxation as soon as we cross into the mountains. I am hoping to retire back there, small acerage, grew up in a log cabin and would now, move back into one. I am glad you have found happiness.

    • Liz says:


  23. Laurel says:

    My dream home is a huge log cabin on a good chunk of land, maybe a couple acres or so, bordered by thick forest and lots of wild flowers and moss and ferns. Here in New Zealand they call it a lifestyle block. I’d be happy with one of those. Nice big fireplace and perfect kitchen with apron sink, butcherblock countertops and a larder. Yes a larder. I saw an old house that had one and fell in love with the idea of it, it might not be all that practical in reality…but I don’t care. I’d have chickens, more kitty cats, an alpaca, some sheepies and/or goats and a couple northern inuit dogs (the direwolf dogs from game of thrones) My land would be filled with fruit trees, and a nice size vegetable plot and fruits on my wooden post fence, and a barn to store all my farmy tools and stuff in and bales of hay, so the husband and I could go have a roll in it and the animals could sleep in there in winter of course. πŸ™‚ I’d have to have something profitable going on….so I’d take veggies to the market and sell my sheepies and alpacas wool and maybe keep bees in the middle of my wildflower field. πŸ™‚ yup thats my dream house.

  24. Erica says:

    I daydream real estate prospect all the time. My dream home would be a Japanese inspired eco house that I would build myself. I’d love to go back to my home state Tasmania and have been swooning over this block of land for the last few weeks: http://www.domain.com.au/property/for-sale/rural/tas/eaglehawk-neck/?adid=2010879504
    My own cascade/waterfall and tree fern gullies! Throw in bushland for the dog and I to explore, a windswept sandy beach down the road. Paradise πŸ™‚

  25. trish says:

    I am living in my dream property on the waterfront central Vancouver Island….no snow (or almost never any) we garden here 10 months a year…I watch sea lions and eagles daily (and whales but not every day) I can shop for everything I need locally, my neighbours sell free range eggs and beef and chickens….and lots of organic produce. I really could live on a 100 mile diet and eat everything I do now except bananas….life is amazing here and its in Canada, safe, and secure and affordable too,,,,,come visit Karen you will never want to go back to Ontario (except to see the family) and they will come visit! this is from a former Toronto area gal!!!

    • Karen says:

      Eep! I couldn’t. I actually love snow. πŸ™‚ But I can see the appeal of Vancouver Island. It really is idillic. ~ karen!

      • carla says:

        Heeyyyy… we get snow! Just enough to play and then it’s gone. Lasts about a week. No real work or misery to it. I love snow too. But you learn to adjust FAST.. just when you get used to the stuff being around it leaves. Perfect!

  26. Judith says:

    Don’t stop looking till you’ve found that dream house, Karen. We dreamed, we looked and we found, and are now living in our dream house – a 150-year-old farmhouse with its various pokey outbuildings, a nice plot of land, a derelict ex-vegetable garden that I was able to turn back into a current vegetable garden. One dog, one cat, but no other animals yet (though we do have a chicken coop, which you saw a picture of a while back). And the best part of the dream: all this is set in the tiniest of villages, with ten other families who are ALL wonderful neighbors and friends. The country life’s the life for me!

    • Karen says:

      Well the truth is, this is pretty much my dream house. I just always have that hobby farm in the back of my head. But truth be told, I could never sell this house I’m in. There’s just something about it. πŸ™‚ ~ karen

  27. Maureen Locke says:

    My dream home would be on the lake where my Mom and Dad’s ashes are spread and I grew up during the summers. I’d like something small, easy to clean, and cottage like with a bunkie built close by so when the kids and grandkids come they have someplace to stay. I’d love to have a garden and chickens but not sure about more animals than that. A dog is a must but cats.. no thanks. My dream is to sell this monstrosity of a house in town and make enough money off it that we would be mortgage free and I wouldn’t have to work. I’d love to be totally off the grid, with solar and wind power. No more paying NS Power these horrendous prices. I’d do crafts and sell produce to supplement my husbands income and for some “mad money” for our trip to Cuba every second year… and the best part… not have to wear a stinking bra unless you have company. πŸ™‚ THAT would be a dream come true. lol

  28. I am living in my dream home. About a year and a half ago, my husband and I moved from the hustle and bustle of Burlington, Ontario ( well, a little more hustlely and bustlely than downtown Dundas) and moved to Newfoundland to start a bed and breakfast by the ocean. After some major renovations and no income in all that time, we finally opened in January (!) of this year with a four star rating. I’ve been waking up every morning this past week, spotting at least one whale while I have my morning coffee . And now that my bookings and phone calls have started to come in, I realize that it was probably one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. Oh and Karen, we finally get to start our garden this year and have actually talked about a few chickens. When you can catch your own fish and pick your own blueberries behind your house, I think we’ve got it pretty good. And winter, who cares? Wood stove, a generator and no commute–no problem!

    • Karen says:

      ACK! Isn’t the no commute GREAT! I commuted to downtown Toronto for over a decade. Every. Single. Day. 3-4 hours of travelling. Every. Single. Day. What a WASTE! Congrats on your B&B doing so well! ~ karen

    • Kim from Milwaukee says:

      Judy, my mom is from Newfoundland and I want to move there soon as well!! Where are you? What tips do you have for someone moving from the states? You’re living my dream!

    • Gail says:

      That sounds wonderful!! Good for you- Are you allowed to say the name of the B&B?

  29. Danica says:

    Dream home would be somewhere with Ocean views, where I could step out onto my balcony and watch the waves crash….I also blame all those thoughts on pinterest.

    In all honesty thought I never thought I would love the country living lifestyle that we have now. Sometimes I still tell people we live “just outside the city” and own 50 acres of land. LOL The new home is really our dream home which we like to call our “Forever Home”

  30. Sally says:

    I basically live in my dream home—-all it’s missing is my dream kitchen, and you are going to help motivate me to evtually DIY once you let us in on yours! We live on a small lake in the woods of NB, at the end of a cul de sac road. My neighbors all have chickens, dogs, gardens, and loving and helpful personalities. The only thing I would change is the amount of bugs we get, but ya can’t have the good without the bad. I’m off for a quick bike ride before my beautiful little family wakes up and starts making demands on me. Heck, I wake up an hour before everyone else just so I CAN enjoy this beautiful place where I live. It’s just far enough out of town that no one can just “pop in” (I can be a hermit by times) but not so far that you can’t run in every other day to pick up what you need. I can go boating, four wheeling, fishing, biking, walking through nature trails and all in my own backyard.

  31. Louise says:

    I dream of living in a fairy tale rose-covered cottage; one with deep window sills, wide plank floors, a deep porch with a swing, and a beautiful, beautiful garden. I want to smell the jasmine, the lavender, and the hundreds of beautiful roses climbing up over the porch pillars, the picket fence and the various trellises and archways.

    I’ll need a gardener, as I love flowers but don’t like gardening. If he can cook and likes to fix things, all the better. And if he’s sweet, smart and cute, and loves to snuggle with me on the couch after maintaning the dream for his princess (that would be me!), it would be absolutely wonderful! (Oh, and rich wouldn’t hurt!) This is a dream, after all!

  32. Kathy smith says:

    Your dream home is exactly like the one I grew up in the Midwest. Over an acre garden(even grew popping corn) chickens and apple and mulberry trees wild strawberries and blackberries. We would make sandwiches and walk the mile to the covered bridge and sit by the banks eating our sandwiches while our toes dangled in the crystal clear stream!
    It was a simpler time, we burned our trash in an oil barrel and when we weren’t in school we entertained ourselves with our imaginations making clover chains for our fairy houses and having apple fights after flash light tag on a barbecue night. When we complained about being bored, we would end up weeding or snapping beans , so we tried to keep our mouths shut. But I have to say they mom and dad both were great to all of us 5 children. I miss them and I miss that time. Married a city boy who doesn’t “get it” but he’s good to me.(31 years) I’m a grandma now living it up on the golf course in Florida and pretty happy with this life!
    Enjoy yours Karen!!!

  33. Carol Hogan says:

    Well, as long as we’re just dreaming, I’ll take P. Allen Smith’s house. Sadly, I can’t figure out how to post a picture or a link. You’ll have to look it up πŸ™

  34. Melody Madden says:

    I’m living in it for the time being. Perched up on a hill, floor to ceiling windows, a wrap around deck and a gorgeous studio with the most amazing light … This is where I paint.

  35. Anita says:

    a small little cottage on the cliff in Bayfield. There would be a small little garden and a set of stairs to get down to the beach. Close enough that I could walk to the Black Dog Pub or Albion Hotel to get a drink.

  36. Kimberley says:

    I grew up on a 500 acre farm with a little house, a horse, lots of cows, a lake, 3 barns, and rows and rows of crops. I’d give anything to be back there right now. Alas, those 500 acres have been turned into a residential neighborhood for the uber rich, so that’s never going to happen. Father-in-law has a 76 acre hobby farm in the middle of nowhere with a 100 year old stone house and beautiful land surrounded on 3 sides by the forest. There is where I want to be, tucked into a corner in a modest house with my hens and my dog and cats, and a beautiful greenhouse (BIG dream there). Add a handful of cows and some pigs and you’ve got my dream wrapped up.

  37. Beth W says:

    My dream house is an old stone house on the edge of a cliff in Ireland, I grow my own veggies, walk 2k to the local pub, but generally spend most of the day with my dog and my woodworking while I wait for Hubby to come home from teaching at the local University. The house will have two staircases, and wood burning fireplaces in all the major rooms. My bed will have a quilt sewn by my grandmother, and the meals will cook themselves. There won’t be many trees, except for two lone sugar maples that I’ve brought with me from Canada so that I can have maple syrup, and also the richness of their colours through the year – and people will know me because of those trees (and not because I’m a crazy old coot living up on a cliff making bookshelves and tables for fun)

  38. marilyn says:

    illuminating comments…somewhere near the ocean for me..cape breton would be awesome.

  39. Su says:

    not one person so far has dream home located in big city… maybe those folks don’t read your blog? My dream home is set in the Smokey Mountains of North Carolina. Every single time I visit there my soul feels at home. Seeing the mist rising among the trees is like a welcome home and the sense of peace and wonder that fills me brings me to tears. Literally. But I would vacation at the ocean. I need to hear the whoosh whoosh of the ocean now and then too. But no Alaska. Never.

  40. Suanne says:

    Got my dream home….a log one….. at the back of 7.7 acres of woods, which is surrounded by cornfields and a big sky that graciously gives me unbelievable sunsets……AND a Faerie Shed out back where time stands still and there’s always a little breeze playing with the curtains. I have a flower garden surrounded by old cedar posts and split rail fencing and my husband just plowed us up a vegetable garden, that I have no doubt we’ll be sharing with the critters that lived here first. Looking forward to retirement in the next year or two so I can be home to enjoy it all the time. I am blessed.

  41. karol says:

    Gosh, can I have four houses if I am dreaming? I want a house in New England in the fall with all of its glorious autumn color; a cottage house at the beach in some tropical setting during the spring, full of lush tropical foliage and flowers; a massive log cabin in the mountains of North Carolina during the winter, and if I’m dreaming, a staff to keep my driveway snow-free and my fire wood stocked; and in the summer, I’d like my home to be a vintage Silver Streak trailer as I visit all of the National Parks I have never seen. ahhhh

  42. Lisa says:

    I’m living in my dream home! It’s an old adobe ranch house on a big ranch. We are 20 miles from the closest town and are pretty isolated, which I LOVE! Lots of horses, cattle, couple dogs and some barn cats. Oh, and also jackrabbits and horny toads!

  43. Beckie says:

    if we’re talking mega-pipe dreams, the Yorkshire Dales …in some kind of cottage with a nice garden

    if we’re talking attainable pipes dreams, some kind of cottage in the middle of about 2 acres in the middle of nowhere, NEPA

  44. Tigersmom says:

    My dream house would be in the city, but on about 5 to 7 acres. It would be a prairie style with a huge wraparound porch and a huge detached and air-conditioned (this is in Texas) work shop for me with a paint booth. The windows below the porch roof would be long and narrow and in groups of three or five and the ceilings would be twelve feet high so that there could be a solid row of shorter windows above the roof line of the porch so that so much natural light came in you wouldn’t need to flip a light switch until the sun went down. And it would have a completely finished out basement for organized storage, room to exercise and a ‘fraidy hole for the tornados we can get here.

    The whole place would be gated so that you could open any door and let the dogs out and there would be one or two more dogs added to the two we already have. There would be several types of gardens, a pool, tons of trees both shade and fruit bearing and a tree house with a zip line for my son and me. And somehow all the dogs would be miraculously trained to only poop and pee in a hidden side yard away from the house.

    I like to dream.

  45. Mary Kay says:

    I with you Karen – I would love a Tiny house on a Tiny farm but would love to be on a lake. There is something about living near the water. I think a lot of that has to do with growing up and both my grandmothers had summer homes on a lake nearby. (That is how my parents met Grandmas were neighbors) and I spent many a summer at their summer cottages. *sigh* I miss them and their summer homes.

  46. kathleen everett says:

    Finally living the dream- Hudson Valley 1700’s farmhouse, barns, 14 chickens, 2 goats, (no cats- bird sanctuary in the making) growing and putting up our food, bartering eggs for meat…still need to tweak a few details- like draining the pipes, hiring a chicken/goat sitter and getting the *ell out of here in February when the dream becomes an ice-bound nightmare!

  47. ~JackieVB says:

    I watch those Alaska shows – Buying Alaska and Life Below Zero, love them but couldn’t live there because I need to have a garden. But my dream house is an old farm house with a view of the mountains. 10 – 20 acres because I want to have a large pond and a smaller one that I could use as a natural swimming pool. I haven’t figured out which animals I would keep but I know it would be chickens, a house cat, a couple of barn cats and a dog. I’m writing this as I sit in my cubicle so I’m feeling kinda sad that I have to call it my dream home instead of my real home.

  48. Diana says:

    My dream is a german Cityhouse builded around 1850-1900. With wooden parquet that makes creaky noise when you walk over it. White double winged doors and the ceiling with stucco must be 4meters high. Big windows… I also like the swedish way of living. Nice red houses along a great fjord!!!
    I`m living in a really small village wedged between mountains with a nearely 1000y old monastery ruin directly in front of our house. (Believe me, only great, when you come as a tourist!)
    So what I really need are younger people and a lot of sky around me…

  49. Susan Preston says:

    A stone house with enough room for a big dining room table so all my kids and grandchildren can eat at it at one time on an acre or two with a couple of dogs, one cat, a few chickens and a goat! No mud, cheap hydro, wood chopped and stacked for the airtight so the heating bills weren’t so high and spring or fall year round. Oh and a million dollars all green and wrinkly under my mattress. Ok now back to reality…..

  50. alicia says:

    100+ year old home within walking distance to the ocean with land where I can raise sheep & chickens & puppies & large gardens with flowers & veggies. Right now I have the gardens, dogs & a beautiful home with a pool but in the middle of the ‘burbs so no farm animals. I’m not a city girl, a small town is where I need to be. Thanks for letting us dream Karen. Have a great weekend!
