What’s in your “ultimate home”?
Someone on MetaFilter’s Q&A site recently posted a question of interest to DIYers: “What features would you design in to your dream home?” It’s a fun question…
Among the better (or funnier) ones:
â€¢ Secret rooms
â€¢ Radient heating in floors
â€¢ Voice command lighting
â€¢ Laundry chutes and dumbwaiters
â€¢ Urinals in the bathroom
I have seen homes before in this area with all of these features. Arcane Technologies is a local company that will address the automatic house aspects …
Hat tip to Houseblogs.
Everybody has a list of good and bad aspects of their homes. What are yours?

Non-negotiable items in my ultimate home:
* Walkout master shower (no tub)
* DLP projector w/ hidden mechanical projection screen
* Bose surround sound
* At least 1/2 acre of grounds manicured to resemble Jefferson’s gardens at UVA
* Cat5 networking
* Workout room w/ networked media center
* Stone patio w/ firepit
Nothing too extravagant.
*Indoor pool – and I don’t mean a flooded basement…
*food and maid service
*multiple broadband providers, in case one is out
*No cat5 needed, wireless will do
Why aren’t these options on the real estate website search page?
Great options – they should be on the search page! Maybe I will add them to my site. I think that high-speed access needs to be an option – it certainly is a requirement for me and most of my clients.
