    A small, totally aesthetic Frank Lloyd Wright "Usonian" house
    on small Virginia acreage, with outstanding views.

    A Big Farmhouse with a wrap around covered porch.. set somewhere with a mixture of timber and acreage. And it would only be complete with two rockers on the front porch, one for me and one for my sweetie. :)

    This. Except mine would also overlook water - a river, lake or beach. It would have a huge eat-in kitchen and a huge craft room :)

    A small beach house, all open and airy but not in a touristy area!!

    Love the FLW style house, too! Simple lines.

    I live in mine - a nice ranch style home with plenty of rooms and a couple of acres - with big trees for shade and fruit...
