    Either Build Or Buy

    The house we live in right now is old and very small. We are renting to own, but our future here is uncertain. This house needs work and we are cluttered as there is no room for storage at all...no real space to put anything. Youre probably wondering why we agreed to buy it in...

    There are 3 places where I would LOVE to live.

    1) in the country. 2) in the woods 3) in the mountains Honestly, any of these 3 places would make me so very happy. The peacefulness, the environment, I love it. I don't like living in an area where there are sooooo many people, so much traffic, so much pollution... I want...

    It would be like my very on castle.

    Cylinder shaped towers without the cone roof. The inside would be beautiful. I want it to be a home for my whole family: my grandma, her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. I have had it planned since the 7th or 8th grade. We had to do a project for Spanish class...

    I have plots of land all over Cyprus and one day, when I can, I will build on one of them. You can see the sea from it if you look one way and the mountains if you look the other. It's surrounded by olive and lemon trees and is just off the main road. I want a U-shaped house...

    I would love a nice plot of land just a bit a

    ways from the cities with a nice, minimalistic house where I could garden, own my own animals, and live a peaceful, tranquil life, without all the stress and hustle of the city. The drivers are just too terrible.

    I want to build my house,

    full stop. It doesn't have to be my "dream house", just a house that I built with my own hands. This summer I will start on the footings, and hopefully have enough time to finish it in its entirety before too long. It will no doubt turn out more like a cabin, post and beam...
