In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Reviving Bricks.”
Hey all, so I decided to take on a prompt that I found on another WordPress account. The prompt is “reviving bricks,” and the description provided says “You just inherited a dilapidated, crumbling-down grand mansion in the countryside. Assuming money is no issue, what do you do with it?”
Okay, so this is what I would do with the mansion. Keep in mind that by no means am I even a mediocre architect (unless Sims 3 counts…?–Didn’t think so), or someone with a carpentry conscious mind, so this is all fantasy. First, I would tear it down if it certainly is crumbling down, so that it would last me longer. Next, I would have someone come in and build a foundation for a two-story house and a basement. The basement would have a trap door that is in no way trap-like, and the basement would also be carpeted. In the bottom level of the house there would be a dining room, kitchen area, and family room. All of the bedrooms would be upstairs. There would also be burglary protection in the form of an alarm, and a gate surrounding the house. The backyard would be fairly flat, and I’d have a Koi pond set up in the back with a protective net over it so that the fish wouldn’t get eaten by predators. There would also be outdoor seating on a back deck, as well as additional outdoor seating along a path encompassing the pond. There would also be two trees in the far back-right corner of the lot with a hammock set up.
The dining room would have a china cabinet and seating/silverware for twelve. It would be painted some sort of warm color, and would be decorated accordingly.
The kitchen would have an island in the center. It would also have tall cabinets and at least two step stools for sorter folk. The walls would also be painted some sort of blue, with stainless steal appliances and black granite counter tops to accompany it.
The family room would have a TV, and again, enough seating for twelve so that hosting guests wouldn’t be a problem.
I’m not done with this post yet, but I will continue it tomorrow some time.
