    Either Stone Or Wood

    My boyfriend wants to build us our own someday when we get married. He's thinking of a stone house, which would be beautiful. I'd like either that or a beautiful wood house.

    I graduated in architecture.

    That has influenced my taste. But I want to build my own home with the things that I think are visually pleasing. It's going to be a long road and maybe I will not get there but I don't think I can buy a home from anyone else. My tastes are too different.
