    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.

    My Dream Home

    I have never really known what sort of house I'd like until I had my first child. Then one day I was reading to my son, a story about a turtle named Franklin. Now, I know it's only a picture drawn for a book, but I thought it was the most beautiful, fantastic house I'd ever seen...
