Whoa... That was so cool!!! I would like to have a house that has a revolutionary security system, so that my parents can leave me alone in the house without worrying about my safety. And a cute robot, of course. I'd like to talk to it a lot, and a device that could instantly read the questions in my head and find its answers so that I don't have to turn on the Wi-Fi each time I want to know something... :)))

I'd like to live in a house with such incredible gadgets. I really liked a security system with a fingerprint scanner and a shower with a using of a rain water wich is heated by solar energy. It's just astoundingly!

I like this dream house, espesially the idea of safe system. I'd like to have it my own dream house. But I'm not pleased with this strange chair at the end of this video, I think it's rather uncomfortable. It's better to have a bean bag. Speaking about the design of this house so it isn't very impressive but, of course, a bit creative. My dream house will be of a simple style without any extra details. On of the main advantages of such house is they it's environmentally frienly. So I agree with the idea that eco house is our future.

The house of my dream must be a comfortable well-planned two-storeyed cottage. Not so large of course. It should be situated in a quite ecologically clean place or street. In front of the house I want a green lawn and flowers . There must be a large kitchen, a pantry, a dining-room, a cosy sitting-room with a fireplace and big windows on the ground floor.
There should be bedrooms with the own separated bathrooms on the first floor, and somebody`s study upstairs. And I want my room to be in the garret with a balcony, of course.
Also I want to have a new and a modern furniture. But the main thing that I do not want to do is to pay money for the house which is not energy economy (without solar battareis ), ecological and Smart House (without control panel). I can call this house the hose of my dream.

My dream house is a place that is only mine. So I want to protect it from other people. I want to have a fingerprint to open the door of my house. Because it is very convenient. And I need not to save my keys. Also I like the idea of the shower from the video. So I want to put it into my house. Also I would like to have a small garden near my dream home. I think that is really cute. So I can take a lot of photos of different flowers there. And I can spend my time for the drawing there.

I guess, that everybody`s home is the reflection of his personality and dream house of course is not an exception.
The way I see it my dream house will be full of cosiness and convenience. The location of it - in the lowland between hills covered with forest - will always inspire me. One of my favourite places will be the big library, where I will spend plenty of time during the rest. As for me going into sports is quiet important : so there wil be two tables for table tennis and all equipment for perfect trainings. I want to admit, that there will be unusual decoration of my house inside: such as ornamental tree supporting the ceiling. I surpose, that there are one of important for me things I want see in my dream house:)

as for me,it is a great idea to make houses full of incredible gadgets, such as control panel and shower with raining water. I will have all necessary modern equipments except one. I will not have fingerprint recognition technology. I think it is quite inconvenient function. For example you will ask your sister to feed your cat, while you have a rest, but she doesn't have key. So, in general, I like this idea.

Be honest, i really like these ideas for future houses, but i guess it will be quite unimaginable. So, that is why i decide to describe the house of my dream now. I imagine, there are some robots, which help me to grow my beloved berries and they also look after the house

my dream house would have all necessary modern equipment. But I will not have one improvment. i think finderprint recognition technology is very unconvenient. For example, you wil ask your sister to feed your cat, while you have a rest abroad. She will not have a key, and he can not get into the house.

My dream house would have a huge garden, with swings and many different types of flowers. I'd like to have some garden furniture, to make barbecue with friends. The garden would have beautiful illumination for it to be bright during the night.
The house would be big, three floors, with studio, play room, library and a dance room. I'd like to have a huge kitchen as well and each bedroom would have big closets.

In My dream house I want to have a big garden med many fruit trees and close to the sea so I can swim on the summer. In the house I want a library with a computer there I can search for the books in the library. I also want a sofa there I can sit and read, an ice cream maker in the kitchen and a computer there I can choose music. In the garden I want to have a tree house there I can sleep if I want it, many pets and a pool with dolphins. Behind the house I want a sheep pasture with sheeps, a aquarium with fishes in the living room and big widows. The house must be son Eco house!

I would have a robot chef that cooked all my food, and also cleaned my house. Or it could be a self cleaning house. I'd like to have a bathtub with massage, and also a tv. I would have a gigantic walk in closet, with a lot off clothes.

My dream house is a morgen and clean house under the water. It will be white on the outside whit big windows so you can see the water and the fishes and all that stuff. The house will be very big and I want a very big bedroom whit a walk in closet. A big bed whit blue sheets and a lot of blue pillows. The bedroom is going to have an own bathroom and in the bathroom it is going to be a bubble bathtub. It is going to be a black and white bathroom so all the furnishings is going to be in black and white. I will also have cactus in there. When you going out of the bathroom you will come to the kitchen. The kitchen will be big and have a mordern stove and oven. The kitchen cabinets will be white and the handles will be black buds. In the roof it is going to be a chandelier that lights up the kitchen. In the hallway it will be an extra door that goes to a water slide that leads out to the water so you can swim whit the Dolphins. The slide will be 181 meter long. The door will have fingerprints lock. This is my Dream house!!
