    Ok, 2 pieces of advice - and make sure there's one extra bedroom than what you need to serve as a stash for toys.
    Check and check. Got both of those. The one thing that I must have is a super nice big back porch. One with a roof, ceiling fans, maybe a hammock, nice comfy chairs. My cousin has one like this and just built a bar to belly-up to on his, like a real bar room type bar with about 20 coats of lacquer on it so that it absolutely shines and brings out the grain in the wood. I think the view from the porch (the porch should be about 6-8 above the ground) will be amazing. But then again, I'm quite the simple man.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    that sounds amazing, but nicely sums what i'd like too. something like this, but maybe with a hot tub in the corner somewhere:




    a nice alternative would be a large, screened pergola with comfortable seating, a small fire pit, a few small tables.

    OH yeah, that's the spot, the top picture. I like the roof better than the tressel (that right?) in the bottom pic. Bad part is if the porch is elevated it will be hard to make a fireplace...thanks for the porch porn.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    A fire pit would be lighter- one of the elevated ones that can double as a table?

    Honestly, I like the idea of that bottom one. Screen in the sides against bugs, install a latticework screen door... Hmmm Excuse me, I need to go see if the back patio can do that.

    Yeah but screening the sides won't make a difference if it doesn't have a roof, yo.

    ours already has the roof, figured we'd keep it and mount some stained glass skylights into it instead of the lattice work. I love the lanai look, but the logistic don't pan out when everything out here stings or bites.
