Top 5 least important features of our new home.

I promise to get to the nitty gritty of building a house as soon as I can, but it is inevitable that there will be some thumb-twiddling time.  As I am not able to plonk myself on the new block and gaze out at the view, I’m relegated to web surfing.

The Top 5 least important features of our new home:

  • Underground cellar

  • Pull out balcony

    Bloomframe balcony.  Could be perfect for our bedroom.

  • Sauna

    This one is for Igor.  I'd rather sit in the cellar than a sauna.

  • Slide
    My version of this would have the exit to the outside.  And a one way trapdoor just perfect for  "time out".

    Could be good for the dirty laundry once the kids are grown up. (Designed by Turett Collaborative Architects.)

  • Secret room
    This secret dresser entrance  leads to a play room.  I had more of a large bath, wine fridge and soundproof walls in mind.  Don't tell the 3 little pigs.

    P.S.  We are not really going to include any of these in our new home.

    Thank goodness they haven’t discovered pull out balconies on the 22nd floor of some Asian residencies I have visited in recent years. (or indoor outdoor slides for that matter.)
