Well the answer is definitely NOT the one we're in now. I'll leave it at that. My dream house is honestly not too large but big enough. It's actually a chalet style. Years ago I saw a floor plan of a 2 story chalet at the Running Y Ranch. I don't like the appearance of the exterior of the ones I saw there, but I really liked the inside. From the main entrance you walk directly into the large family room. In the great room are large windows and a stone fire place in the corner. On the main floor on the opposite side of the great room are the kitchen, dining room, two bedrooms, a bath in between the 2 bedrooms and a laundry room. The thing I loved about this plan was the upstairs. It's actually only the master bedroom with a walk in closet, private bath and loft right off the stairs and outside of the bedroom. I think that would be a perfect place for an open office/library. Of course I would tweak a few things, like the garage being connected to the house with a door right into the laundry room, a wrap around deck, dark natural woods as opposed to light, bleached wood, and a larger kitchen to name a few. I would love to have the house set in the woods, with a stream nearby and some mountains behind us. Here's the link of the plan I liked: http://www.runningy.com/pdf/RY-FP-PelicanSprings.pdf
Maybe I'll be able to have something like this in the future!
