I used to live in a small, quaint house in my hometown of New York. 

I love to decorate. 

My husband, who was also an artist, was always the first one to come up with ideas for the house. 

One day, while we were having lunch, he suggested I try out the design process he was using. 

It was so easy and I was so excited. 

When I started, I didn’t know what I wanted. 

The house was made from old furniture, old photos of my grandparents, and a bunch of pieces I didn’ even know existed. 

But I quickly realized that if I could add some colors and make the house feel like something out of a fairy tale, I’d be a better designer. 

And so, I started to look at others’ homes. 

There were some really beautiful ones, and others that I felt were very basic. 

So, after a few months of experimenting, I decided to build my own house. 

 I decided to call it “A Roomy House”. 

It is basically just an empty space on my own, and the only items I can add are a desk, a television, a bed, and some cabinets. 

This house is meant to be my home, not just a work space. 

 This house has a simple design. 

 It has two bedrooms. 

 One is a living room and one is a bedroom. 

 There is a kitchen and bathroom. 

  A closet. 

   I built the house with two walls. 

 Its the same layout as the other homes, but its the one that really fits me. 

 The only thing that changed is the wallpaper. 

 But that’s ok. 

As I said before, I love decorating. 

To see a picture of what my decorating looks like now, scroll to the bottom of this post. 

 In this post, I will be sharing with you how I made the first home in my design career. 

After all, you are reading my story, right? 

Now, before we get into the details, let me tell you what I am going to build this home out of. 

First, the house itself. 

Now before I go into details on the building, let’s go into the house myself. 

 I got the basic pieces from Craigslist. 

All of the wood, woodworking supplies, and other supplies you need to build a home. 

Here are some more details on how I built this house:The house is 3.5 acres. 

Its located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, a block of flats about two blocks south of the Empire State Building. 

You will need to make sure that your land is well-grazed. 

Your land will be well-watered and there are many ponds, rivers, and streams that will provide you with fresh water. 

If you don’t have enough land, you can buy a lot of land. 

For this house, I have chosen a lot for the area. 

We bought a lot near where I live in Brooklyn. 

A lot of it is really nice, but I wanted to make this house feel a little more homey. 

Also, it was the right size for my kids. 

They wanted to have a space with lots of room. 

What’s even more important is that they have a place to play. 

Because of that, we bought a large house in Brooklyn that they can use for a lot. 

At the time, I was in college, so I decided that I would use the house as my living space, so that we could play when I went home from college. 

In the past, I used this house for all of my classes and activities. 

Not anymore. 

With a bit of space, I would also be able to take my kids to play in the backyard. 

Then, I also wanted to expand the backyard into a play space. 

Once the kids were able to play there, they would be able use the backyard as a picnic area and play for the rest of the week. 

That is a lot easier when you have the space. 

      Next, the bathroom. 

From here, I went back to Craigslist and bought a new toilet. 

(The bathroom I had already bought.) 

The toilet had already been installed, so it didn’t need to be replaced. 

Of course, there was a lot to do before I installed the new toilet, so the toilet was just hanging there for now. 

Next, I added a door to the front of the house that would allow me to lock it down. 

How I did that is pretty obvious, and you can read the detailed instructions here:  How to Add a Door to a Home to Lock It Down. 

Since I needed to lock the door down, I did it with a screw. 

Even though I didn�t want to
