A dream home thread... Awww

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Bigfeet, Oct 7, 2002.


  1. Well I've been bored all day today, instead of practicing I vedged out infront of the tv and settled upon MTV. Needless to say that's when you know you're bored enough to want to kill yourself... again. But I actually got an idea from Cribs. :eek: So us all being musicians most wanting to make it big in the music world. What would you do if you had the money of a sold out, record heaving string monkey to build your ideal home?

    I want to live in a home that looks like a fun house on the inside, a hallway that looks like one of those rotating tubes that goes to the back rooms, and a padded bed room. I'd hire graphitti artist to paint the living room and hallway with a huge hypnotic circle in the middle as well as other designs in black and white all over the cieling and floors for the living room and have the tube shaped hallway painted so it looks like it's on the inside of a human so when you walk down it, it will look like you're being given birth to. Well that's it so far... I think I'll add to it being as pathetic as I am...

    What's yours?
     
  2. I planned this out a long time ago in a drafting class:

    2 buildings, both 2 stories, connected by a 2nd storie hallway/bridge. Bottom floor of building one, main entrance, living room, kitchen, dining room, rec room. Top floor, 2 bedrooms, plus a large bathroom. Bottome floor of Building 2, large workshop, and large recording/sound room. Top floor, master bedroom, and another large bathroom.

    The garage would be semi-detached, and under the bridge would be a nice garden.

    Oh, and this is post #5100, if anyone cares.

    Rock on

    Hmmmm...

    A four car garage and at least four second floor bedrooms (the house would be divided into thirds, with two bedrooms in each outer third and an indoor swimming pool, complete with a sauna and a jacuzzi, in the middle third). A kitchen, dining room and living room, set halfway between the basement level and the first floor. A full basement, with workout room, theater and game room and a separate utility room and at least three full bathrooms (one of them a master bath, in the master bedroom, of course). I'd also like a separate building in the backyard, complete with a stage, PA and all instruments and a full bar, for hosting parties and booking gigs. I'd like the entire complex to be built with as much wood as the law allows (think: Ski lodge or log cabin-esque) and to be as secluded as possible. Throw in a nice little pond and I'd be happy as a goose eatin' grapes!
     
  4. Id buy Wyoming and kick everyone out.

    Then, after the 3 of them left, I'd have all of Wyoming for myself.

    That or Id live in a circus, and pay people to be always performing. GOd I ove circuses.

    My dream home would be...As you walk into the foyer you will have to cross a little bridge over the indoor swimming pool. I want a huge kitchen and a large island for me to cook. I want my home to be four floors. The top floor will be for my honey. That will be his recording/playing studio. Lots of window and a balcony to walk out side to get fresh air. Basement will be the reckroom, lots of storage space, a huge master bedroom w/a fire place, formal dining room, a parlor for guests, and about 5 bedroom each with its own bathrooms, so when I have guests, they can have complete privacy, oh yeah...I would also become a foster parent to teenagers.;)
     
  6. Nope., I 'd keep my house the same ..maybe a bigger pool and bowling lane or two...:D

    I would have 3 separate buildings set up like this.

    .-----.
    --.--
    The top left corner (building 2) would be devoted to music and arts. Recording studio, stage, seating in the back. the top story would have arts rooms for my woman. She loves to paint and all that.

    The top right corner (building 3) would have all the bedrooms. Master bedroom and very large bathroom on the 2nd floor. The first floor would have 4 bedrooms and 2 baths. with a rec room in the middle.

    The bottom dot in the middle (building 1) would have kitchen, swimming pool, formal living room, and dining room. The kitchen, the living room, and the dining room would be surrounded by a swimming pool. this building would have a very very high roof.

    The whole house design would be very modern, with lots of glass and shiny metal.

    Before I spend even a cent on a stick of gum, my parents get a house. Without them, I'd have nothing.

    Just an average looking house, but it needs a BIIIG basement... with two-car garage, a large recording/rehearsal room with separate control room, a vocal booth, separate cubbies for miking amps, a computer room, and a large home cinema room.

    Oh yeah, a kitchen and some bath rooms would be nice too...

    :)

    A medium-sized cottage in the middle of the New Hampshire woods. That or a castle.
     
  18. Gia says, "i want a room with loads of glitter in it and sequins and more glitter and fabric paint and a big sewing machine which would be painted pink sparkly and i could customise and make clothes and bags in it." So I'll add that to our house... We both want a studio but she wants her own with plane white walls with pink stars that she can write all of her lyrics on, in pink... and I think she doesn't want it to be as complicated as I would like mine to be. I want a wall full of synths and remixing devices in mine, as well as a full arsonal of filters, ditortions and signal processors to do what I will with. I'd like to add that my living room will be on a split level and will have stair cases all around.

    It always changes when you get your sugnificant other involved. :rolleyes:

    Tell me about it. I'm a complete minimalist and my "significant other" is far from it, so my bathroom is filled with butterfly things, my kitchen is filled with apple things, and so on. Then again, she has to deal with my basses being strung about and my studio having cinderblock shelves.

    I want a medium sized house, with two stories and a basement. 3 bed, 4 bath (one in the basement), a cutaway/loft style second story that looks out over the first floor.

    The basement would be a kick ass practice room/studio. Soundproof, put in digital drums, then get a bunch of headphones, and hook everyone up to the board...voila! Almost silent practice, assuming there are no horn/percussion players. Just soundproof for vocals!

    Don't need much, just a living room, bedroom, computer room, and a library/study. I think my dream house would be about 200,000. Or less.
