Summer Dreaming {No. 1}

OK…let’s have some Friday fun. If you lived in this home….or owned it as a vacation home…..what do you see yourself doing here? Remember…this is Summer Dreaming… is no object. Spill it….what would you do?

Summer Dreaming



I think this is an amazing lake house….and I would definitely spend most of my time on the top floor. I imagine this lake house to be in the mountains. My favorite. Maybe Lake Lure………

My bedroom would be overlooking the water and I would have coffee each morning out on the deck while watching the sun come up over the water and listening to the water lap the shore.

I would have late night parties on the awesome lower level wraparound porch. Lingering parties {my favorite} where everyone stays late sharing their heart and laughing till they cry. Staying so late they may have to crash in one of the many bedrooms inside.

I would have a mahogany roustabout boat that I would scoot around on the water with…..docking at little town ports to grab a bite to eat and meet new people. {I love mahogany roustabouts!} Some people call them runabouts…..but I’ve always liked ‘roustabout’. Here’s a pic of one…..

    I would relax beside you over-looking the lake with a cup of coffee as well. I would have a room dedicated as a workshop so I can build the things you want… I mean “need”! I would also find a place to hide whenever the “honey-do” list got too big! And, in my spare time, I would make a disc golf course on the property!

    i would alternate between the dock and one of the gorgeous porches…. drinking coffee in the AM with all my besties…. sharing some down time together…. maybe a laid back boat ride…. sunning….. swimming… back to the porch for sweet iced tea and grilling…. LOTS OF GOOD BOOKS!!! DOWN TIME IN THIS BEAUTIFUL PLACE WOULD BE AWESOME!!!!

    I’d be greeting all my friends and family for a great week’s vacation, letting the events play out without planning. Just enjoying being around everyone I love. Then at the end of the week I’d pack my bags and head home to my very much smaller and well loved home. That’s just too much house for me!

      Sounds wonderful, Sandy….but since you’re dreaming…you could have a crew come in once a week and clean it! ;) heehee
