Your Ideal Home
Tell us about it. The location, the decor, its size, the style, everything! You can even get totally crazy with it.

I'll go first just to kick things off...

You can click all of these thumbnails for full versions...

Top level/above ground (left) | Bottom level/under ground (right):

The exterior would be similar to Rosecliff (but one floor):

The grand staircase prominent in the top level would be like Buckingham palace:

The decor would be similar to this, albeit a bit darker red:

And like this:

The yard would have an italian garden in similar style to this:

Though, the plants themselves would be different. In fact, they'd mostly be fake plants that just look really good and all of the perfectly manicured grass would actually be fake grass so I wouldn't have to maintain it or pay for it to be maintained.

And here's some various things I'd have stuff in similar style to:

[Image: wUqSaL7U.jpg] [Image: zs1la7F2.jpg] [Image: 8T5Wmj19.jpg] [Image: je3aWdB1.jpg]

I'd probably have a lot of statues 3d printed myself that I'd make in DAZ Studio, like have the bases 3d printed then just fill them with cement and then I could sell copies of them to recoop the costs of having them 3d printed.

A lot of the fancy gold work around the house I'd actually have 3d printed as well but I wouldn't want it to be gold because that's way too expensive. I'm thinking some kind of anondized polished brass or some kind of non-tarnishing metal that could look like polished gold and not tarnish but be very cheap.

The house itself would be built almost entirely as an insulated reinforced concrete shell which would make it tornado proof, which is also why the living areas are underground since you would be safe. The home being reinforced concrete also prevents the possibility of something like a house fire since concrete doesn't burn. The heating/cooling system would be cheaper and ran through the walls since it's much cheaper to heat/cool a reinforced concrete home. It'd be great because the concrete could be molded to the shape I want the exterior to be and after being treated it'd look like it'd been clad in white terracotta tiles.

The underground garage would open up from the front of the driveway in front of the fountain. You could drive over it without even noticing that it was there but with the right gate opener it'd open up and you'd drive down a ramp and down into a great garage.

The house would be built earthquake proof as well with a foundation intended to be able to sway several feet if needed, so it'd be pretty good against natural disasters of all kinds.

I was also thinking about having the pool so it looks similar to Queen Sophie Anne's pool from True Blood in that there'd be false walls with decor/lights that make it look like it's above ground and that it's a beautiful day outside. Like so:

The house isn't actually as huge as it looks, it's actually just slightly larger than an average house, certainly not palace sized. It's designed with four master bedrooms and master baths just so whoever ends up living in it would have great accommodations. It'd leave room for self+spouse and the possibility of something like 3 kids, or 6 kids if you put 2 per room (but holy hell I'd never have 6 kids, even 1 would be pushing it). Aside from kids it could also be used for something like a maid or something, if I ever had that kind of money to afford one. But the house is designed to be pretty affordable so despite looking extremely fancy I wouldn't necessarily be rich to be living in it.

You can find a lot of info on how the house would be built here since it outlines a lot about building concrete reinforced shells: http://www.tornadoproofhouses.com/

RE: Your Ideal Home
I'm an urbanite, so I dream of an apartment at the top of a tall tower, with a big balcony, or roof garden. (think Bruce Waynes penthouse in The Dark Knight)

Size?, big enough to hold a party, but not so big that it feels lonely when I'm there by myself

Decor? comfort is king, so lots of soft comfy furnishings

Any other aspects? I'm not fussy

Having said all of the above, I live in a neighbourhood I dreamed of as a kid, so I got no complaints Smile

RE: Your Ideal Home
I just want covered parking for our cars (preferably a big garage with a workspace) and a wide enough driveway that I don't have to pull my car out in order to let my wife out when she wants to drive her car, or vice versa. Those are things I sorely miss from living at home.

RE: Your Ideal Home
I'm glad I'm not the only one who's thought about this.

I started to design a place for my story's characters to live a while ago, and I'd love to live somewhere very similar. Not really just a home, but also an entertainment and fitness training facility. Here's the old plan I started:

[Image: pad-01-gf.jpg]

I really should finish it, but so far...

There's a huge computer gaming room, pool room, wargaming/boardgaming room, cinema, swimming pool with tunnels you can swim through out to the lagoon, gym, bowling lanes, squash courts, and an indoor sports court for anything like basketball, badminton or soccer.

There's a music studio completely soundproof down in the basement, and the whole building is surrounded by fields which also contain other sports pitches and assault courses for training and so on.

There's a host of bedrooms upstairs for the randy lot to pleasure themselves in, though I don't think I'd personally need all those unless 30+ sex hungry alien and human ladies turned up on my doorstep lol. Which of course they would. It's my dream home after all...

There'd be very little decoration, rather quite minimalist and organized.

There's a few empty spaces that need filling, but this is the basic idea.

Also love the idea of the underground garage. There's something similar in my stories where you have to drive down underground to reach a spaceship hangar. There's just something cool about the hidden aspect of it.

RE: Your Ideal Home
I went back and changed some stuff a few times. I'll call this one version 3:

[Image: WULkleHN.jpg] [Image: 8thQZXGX.jpg]

I went ahead and made most of the house above ground and made it more of a "U" shape with 2 extra bedrooms and an enclosed back yard with a greenhouse. This time it has a normal garage, albeit probably a 4 car one, and I made some nice changes to the driveway. The pink circles along it are cherry blossoms. So, driving down my driveway would just blow your mind it'd be so beautiful lol.

I also have an outer wall, gate, moat, and drawbridge. Aww yeah.

I also have a ball room this time, cause why not? A place like this, I imagine people would want to plan events here.

Taking the grand staircase up takes you to the balcony which just hangs over the backyard more or less but it's been extended from just horizontal to also vertical along the house. If you take it down you enter the underground level. That's where all the fun stuff is.

So you go down the grand staircase and there's a pool, air hockey room, billiard room, game room, and a ball pit. There's also a few storage rooms, a laundry room, and some public restrooms & showers with individual changing rooms attached to the showers.

I also threw in a library because I didn't know what to do with the extra room, though I doubt I'd ever fill it up with books and I'm a bit cautious of having a library next to a pool, but eh whatever. Then also inside the library is a really big safe, for all my loot.

I figure if I ever had kids over I could just tell my guests to let their kids play downstairs and there'd be enough stuff down there to keep them so occupied they'd never want to leave which would allow the adults to have their ball or watch movies or have a bbq or whatever, y'know?

The place kinda looks like a palace at this point xD... I haven't messed with landscaping stuff for the back yard or courtyard or whatever I'd call it, but I'd make that look nice too. The dark green grass is fake grass so I'd never have to mow and the light green is normal grass cause it's outside the wall and who gives a crap.
