Explanation Essay – My Dream Home

Reading the nutrition daily, floating up my elevator stairs or staring at a statue of Lord Farkward. Either one, today I am going to be talking about My Dream Home. I will be explaining the elements I want, to make my life more luxurious and full. 

The pantries in my house would be the size of a walk in closet. It wouldn’t only have dry foods, but also refrigerated foods. Half of the pantry would be a fridge/freezer, stocked with fruits, vegetables, meat and much more. The other half would hold my dry foods which would be chips, rice, flour etc. Along with a nutrition pad for all of my health needs.

It’s hard walking up stairs, but also boring waiting for the elevator. So I would have multiple escalators all over my house. This would make it more easy and efficient for my body to get from place to place. 

In my personal opinion, Lord Farkward is a handsome cartoon character. I would love to have him in my house, but of course he is fiction. So I would have to make him into a big, bold statue. Having him made out of gold, with diamonds encrusted into his crystally eyes. 

From big pantries to big statues, those are the things I would want in My Dream House. There are many other things I would want in this “Dream House” of mine, but these are the must-haves. Could this house be more than a dream?
