My Dream Home

There used to be a field here.  The spring from Spring Mill feeds the pond.  It was built large enough to water ski on and the owners did.

The previous owners built this place using all recycled lumber and tin,

I've always loved it. It’s peaceful.

The bridge leads to an island.
Absolutely beautiful
and the water goes on forever.

I would love to live in a place like that. Does anyone live there now?
It is just beautiful. I love a tin roof so much.

I simply don't see the attraction of the house. It looks like an overgrown shed.

I don't know about you, but when I see dreamy houses like that my mind seems to go to a happy place as I imagine living there.
This particular house looks especially dreamy!

Michaele said...

That is for sure a dream home. Not to be a downer, but after seeing all the flood damage this past summer, I don't think I would build like that. But before I saw what I saw - I would do that in a heartbeat. Something about the water...

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Very cool! It looks so peaceful. The perfect retirement home. :D

Oh wow! That's great! So, the house is on the island? I just LOVE it!

Gail said...

The house is on the bank of the water and the bridge leads to the island. Click to enlarge and you can see the island in the first and second picture. If I had gotten closer, I would have been trespassing. Around here, that is a serious offense.

Jean said...

That looks wonderful. So peaceful.
