My kind of house

Traditional. Single storey. With maybe a neighbour to chat to? Surrounded by greenery, but not enough to block the view. With a bench to sit on to admire that view. What kind of view? Something like this might do.

But it’s not perfect. There’s no chimney, Becky!


  1. I like the neat look off that house, although the windows should be bigger to take advantage of the lovely view. My dad was a builder, so I started looking at house plans when I was young. I thought at one time that I wanted to be an architect. I went into teaching instead.

    1. I’ve always liked the style of the traditional houses here, Nikki, but they do always tend to have small windows. To keep heat out, I imagine. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ A covered porch would be good. Me in my rocking chair πŸ™‚ But it would spoil the look of the house.


  2. Oh, those blues in both photos are just so pretty. When I came to Arizona to look for a house, I looked only at one-story homes because my husband doesn’t really want to do stairs, but even more so, a two-story house is hellishly expensive to keep cool in summer (which lasts about 6 months) and since the bedrooms are usually upstairs, you really have to keep it cool.

    1. I’ve always loved the bungalow style traditional houses here but we have a modern house, and actually it’s rather difficult to heat in the winter. I do miss my English central heating sometimes πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  3. Something like this might do for us as well! Nice house Jo
    Although I do prefer two stories – the things you pointed out made it sound so charming – it also seems strong and don’t proof –
