{dreaming of} my dream house...

i need little encouragement to think about my dream house... my dad is a draftsman and i've been brought up around house plans! oh the dreams i have... one day hubs and i will live in our beautiful house, designed by us (don't we all have that desire?? will it happen?? i hope so!)

this is one house that caught my eye recently. located on stradbroke island, it's made by a team in Brisbane called happy haus. it's a series of small buildings (modules), connected by spaces and walkways. there's a living module, a sleeping module, and you just add what you need!



i love the idea of a not-so-big house. i read the book a while back and it just makes sense. space that is practical and beautiful. but only as big as you need. less cleaning, yes! but more together time with your family. you're near eachother, not at separate ends of a too-big house...



this little house is just that. unassuming. a small eco-footprint is important to me, and this ticks the boxes. a space that makes the beautiful landscape around it's focus. i want a house that will let me live openly with the outside. oh! i could go on an on...

you can see more amazing pics here ...



and i just love that it arrives on the back of a truck and gets winched into place!

this looks like a house that was on a show {cannot remember for the life of me} and i loved it too. they put it in melbourne though and you could see the olympic stadium. it was magnificent!

Amazing! What a great idea, different modules in a home. Mightn't be fun going from your bedroom to breakfast if it's raining though!

Ooooh what ace fun! I totally agree about big houses. Really overrated, hard to run and maintain, etc etc....
