The house I would like to live in
 
I live in a small three-roomed flat that we call home. It houses our large extended family. Mother and Father have the use of one room and my little sister sleeps there too. The second room is used by my brother and his wife. That leaves Grandma and me and we use the living room to sleep in at night. The house is very crowded, hot and stuffy. It lacks privacy and there is no place to keep my personal belongings which are stacked on a shelf in a corner of the living room and hidden from sight by an old curtain.

In my dreams, I long for a larger house. It would be spacious enough with rooms for everyone - a bedroom for my parents, one for Grandma and my little sister to share, one for my brother and his wife if they are still living at home and of course a room for myself. There would be large airy curtained windows in all the rooms and these will have enough storage space for clothes and personal effects. My room would have a desk and chair to house my computer where I can work from and shelves for all my books, hi-fi system and a glass cabinet to display my memorabilia.

There will be a family room large enough for all of us to relax in. It will have comfortable velvet sofas and cushions and a large flat-screen television for our entertainment. I will make sure that there is adequate lighting to sit and read in comfort. My dream home would also have a living room where guests would be entertained in. It would also have a modest dining room where meals are served.

The rooms would have high ceilings so that air through the open windows circulates freely to keep the rooms cool. The house would be tastefully decorated with minimal but eclectic furniture, table decorations and wall mountings to give it a feel of openness and space. All the walls will be painted a light, bright neutral colour. The floors would be tiled with cream marble tiles in the living room and wood parquet flooring for the bedrooms. This would make cleaning and sweeping simple and easy. The kitchen would be practically fitted out to allow economy of movement when preparing or cooking a meal.

There will be adequate toilets and bathroom facilities for everyone and will be safe for my Grandma to manage independently. The floors will have a non-slip surface to prevent any accidents with grab rails fixed on the walls for use if needed.

My dream house would have either a small garden where we can sit out in the cool evenings under a shaded umbrella or tree and listen to the birds singing in the garden. Otherwise, I would like to have a balcony where I can enjoy the views across the skyline. I would spend evenings sitting in a swing chair and grow flowering and foliage plants in pots.

This would be the house that I would like to live in.
