Yes, definitely dreamy.

I enjoyed reading the article you posted a link to on the UO site. Something for HGTV to consider.

Very intriguing, Eugenia. A beautiful home; seemingly well-built, eco-friendly, energy conscious and healthy for its inhabitants. I'd certainly like to read more about it, including a few critiques from the pros on any potential downsides, whether short, medium or long-term in the functionality, structural integrity and durability of its materials from the inside out. And the projected cost to build of $133 per square foot is remarkable.

Could we soon be seeing an HGTV Smart Home built with some of these smart features? At that price, count me in!

HGTV... DIY -- What about it? It may be time to get on board this building trend. Tiny homes may be fun but Hemcrete homes may be the hottest and coolest next thing.

I'd say the standout for me is #6, OCO. It's so spacious, warm and inviting. With a fireplace and two comfy armchairs, it really is an all-day spa affair.

Going out of my usual traditional styled comfort zone, I could learn to love #9 as well. It's crisp, clean and best of all has that wall of glass looking out on the greenery, though I'd carefully lay down some well-placed white/off-white plush area rugs for a soothing underfoot feel to cozy up the look.

Any one of those outdoor kitchens and entertainment areas will work fine for me, thank you.

Amazing, isn't it, how far outdoor kitchens have come over the years both in style, function and ease of use. Then again, for those that yearn for the good old days, there are still a few of the modern outdoor kitchen's predecessors to be found.

Imagine the lively family gatherings that were enjoyed around this rustic old-world example... http://static1.bigstockphoto.com/thumbs/9/4/1/large2/1492973.jpg

Is It Finally FRIDAY?

Wondering where Brian Patrick Flynn's interpretation of casually sophisticated Florida style will take us with the renovation of HGTV Dream Home 2016?
