I loved Frank Lloyd Wright's modernistic Falling Waters and how it was surrounded by nature.

We lived in a good sized older house with a wrap around porch and a big yard and I thought it was too old fashioned and boring. Now I'd love to have a big porch like that and would never want all the problems that the silly modernistic house seems to have had. Multiple repairs. And I can no longer stand all those walls of glass and the un-homey feeling it must have.

As a child I first liked the idea of a Swiss Chalet type home. I think it was due to some puzzle or a calendar photo, along with desire for some own special 'place' like a vacation cabin.



Then I liked the Victorian and its foreboding mystery - the Carson Mansion in Eureka became my favorite.





Around age 12 my parents took me to Stan Hywet Hall and that became my favorite.





Then adulthood and the reality of what upkeep is required for ones own personal residence and the modest cabin, arts crafts bungalow or ranch / southwest becomes favorite for practical purposes.

I had a friend who had the most beautiful house with her own bedroom and I have to admit I was quite jealous. I lived with my grandmother at the time because my parents were getting divorced. My grandmothers house was big and nice but nothing like my friends house. I had to share a room with my younger brother and I hated it. Obviously as a nine year old you dream about what you want and what you can't have. As an adult I think back and it was silly. I should have just been happy to have a roof over my head and be out of an abusive household.

an English cottage with a thatched roof that looked like it came out of a fairytale. Of course, it would also have an amazing garden.
