As much as I've enjoyed and appreciated my pretty little townhouse in Ohio, I'm starting to have dreams and wishes of a "real" house when we move. There are just some things you can't have or do when you share walls with neighbors or only have a few square feet for a garden or can't make any alterations to the house.
1. A vegetable garden. A few times when I was a kid, my dad attempted (and sometimes succeeded at) a vegetable garden. Some attemps were better than others but the memories I have of them are good ones and I'd like to give it a shot.
2. Dedicated laundry room. I know this is a big "if" and I don't really have much control over it unless our house comes with one, but I still would really love it. Then maybe my bedroom wouldn't be a dumping ground for unfolded clothes.
3. A fenced yard. Oh how my puppies would love to run around outside every day. Since the closest dog park is a good 15 minutes away, my dogs unfortunately don't get a lot outdoor running around time. But whenever we do get to the park, they just run and run and run and I just know they would love having yard to play in.
4. A place for everything and everything in it's place. This is a little less tangible, I know. I have two problems with keeping my house neat and organized. 1. My hoarding and messiness tendencies. 2. Not enough space. I'm really hoping that with a little more space I will acutally have a designated place for the things that currently don't have homes because there just isn't enough room
I know there are a few more things but I can't think of them just now. Do y'all have any wishes for you current or future home?
