Honeymoon Cottage

I'll start out by apologizing for the lack of posts lately.  Packing bores me to death, and that's pretty much all I've been doing lately.  That and deciding to watch 7 classic Italian films in one week - which has been a lot of fun and a nice boredom alleviator (which I have decided is a word, despite what spellcheck says).  Oh, yeah and I've been sick.  Really sick - twice.  So, hopefully you'll accept my apologies and not get too upset with the semi-random posts for the next couple of weeks until we get everything packed, moved, and settled.

Anyway, one of my vices is shopping for house plans online. and are frequent hits on my computer.  My parents built their own house and I've always had dreams of building my own.  I'm definitely a Craftsman cottage style girl.  The ultimate dream house would have 3 bedrooms plus home office/library, a master bath with a clawfoot tub and a separate shower, a kitchen with ginormous island, and a great outdoor sunroom.  That's not asking too much, is it?

Anyway, this is the house I've been lovely this week.  It's not Craftsman, but it's got barrels of charm. 

It's called the Honeymoon Cottage - even though it's pushing 2000 sq ft - so I'm not sure if that technically qualifies as a "cottage."  Here's the first floor:

The second floor:

You can buy the plans from and build it yourself.  Wouldn't it look so beautiful nestled in a wooded lot?  A total fairy tale house.
