Breathing Room

An extra room has magically been added to your home overnight. The catch: if you add more than three items to it, it disappears. How do you use it?

As I live in a smallish flat / apartment – three bedrooms but really small – space is premium. I wish we had more space. I like the actual apartment but not the building as it has absolutely no amenities and is shit on maintenance. We have three bedrooms, one of which is being used as a common room. It has our iron board, some shelves and book shelves, storage for paper work and stuff, a built in table and a chair and my parent’s pooja shit and a steel cupboard in which we keep some clothes.

That leaves some space in the center to walk around. My bathroom is adjacent to that and next to the bathroom is my bedroom. My parents have the other bedroom and we have a kitchen and the living room / dining table. I have my queen sized bed, a small table for my laptop, speakers, external hard drives and some other computer stuff and a char, a built in cupboard, a circular clothes stand to hang some clothes and ofcourse the book shelf I had made to showcase my starships.

I could use another room, same size as the one I sleep in. I would put a large couch and add a tv and bluray / dvd player and use it as a chill out room.

What Would Your Dream Home Be Like?

What Would Your Dream Home Be Like?

It has changed a bit over the years but currently what I would like in a dream home is a nice, big spacious 2 storey home, double car attached garage, that starts off with a living / dining room in the front off the foyer / entrance. It is very important that the living / dining room for guests is away from the kitchen and family room. That is for guests and entertaining, the latter is for you and your family. One half bathroom / powder room for guests and for emergencies when you are at home too. At the back of the house I would like a large kitchen with center island, large freezer /fridge, beer fridge, double wall ovens.

One nice room as a den / office where I have my computer, dvd/bluray collections and various Star Trek and o unsecured cash loan ther Scifi models on display. A pantry area and a butler’s pantry too. A nice deck out back with a large green yard confined by picket fences on the left and right sides and a grill at the back – which overlooks a small lake. 2 dogs and 2 kitties that play in that yard. One smoking hot wife who is totally in love & lust with me and vice versa. Above a master bedroom with 5 piece attached bathroom and 2 large walk in closets. 2 additional bedrooms with bath attached and a single room which will be converted into a library.

The basement will have a large tv room, pool table, Foosball table, a small wine cellar, one half bathroom, an additional bedroom with batch attached and a storage room next to the facilities room. And it has to be a walkout basement leading to the backyard. That’s all I ask for!
