  2. So many great STORAGE/ORGANIZATION ideas that I can't just pick one. My fav's are:

    1) MASTER SUITE Rolling Bookcase
    2) HALLWAY Message Center made of the old ICE BOX
    3) FAMILY ROOM Media Center hidden under the stairs.
    4) KITCHEN Island
    5) MASTER SUITE Window Seats

  3. I still love the kitchen island and pantry the best!!!! They are so handy. I have a much smaller island with wheels in my kitchen, it does h help though. I've also put the pull storage shelves in 3 of my cabinets, always helpful. Having moved from a 2000 sq. ft. home to appx. 1400 we have learned how to make storage where no one would expect it. :) I have a neighbor who bought a home just smaller than ours and she'll come over and spend time trying to determine how she can do the same in her home.

    • I, also love the island on wheels and the pantry with French doors! Very useful with many alternatives….and really good looking! Way to go Dylan, Laurie, Grundy, and everyone involved in the design and build! What a great team! You all have an open invitation to my house! Hope to see you soon! HA!^_^

  5. So nice to have all the storage pictures in one place. Some I don't think about but really help out. I just love the pantry and the french doors. Other doors would have been too heavy a look. Man I want to win this house. Love, Love everything about it.

  7. Virginia,

    I just re-read the rules and am confused. My husband and I have seperate email addresses we use. However, I don't know if AOL looks at us as seperate people. Can we both enter under our own email address? It's a bit confusing. Thanks!

    • Virginia, you should both be able to enter. You could win or your husband could win.

    • Scripps encourages all eligible family members to enter. The rules clarify that the prize goes to the owner of the email, because they realize it might be just one person who daily enters each person one at a time on his/her own email. You are doing it correctly. :)

  8. Love all the storage areas…there is never enough storage! I really like that the kids have a reading nook in the walk in closet. I don't have kids, but I have lots of nieces and nephews with little ones. I can see this little room becoming a club house or fort! I also love the firewood storage and the sink in the boat house.

  9. I think the rolling bookcase/door is my favorite.
