It boasts a Diamond multisport hull and exclusive Integrated Surf Platform, the 20 VTX would be perfect for the cottage! It has the ability to create world-class slalom flats, great surf waves and huge surf wakes. Everything I would want in a 20-footer. 20 feet may seem small to some, however the 20 VTX has a creative design from Malibu Boats that makes it feel spacious with room for up to 10 people, and any gear you may need for riding. The main attraction is that it is a watersports machine designed for the whole family! It's really amazing how a boat that skis so well can also create such huge waves for wakesurfing and waves. It's very agile and can output 450 foot-pounds of torque on tap. This would create great opportunities for the family to enjoy whatever watersport they enjoy, either skiing, surfing or wake boarding, in ways that other crossovers cant match!

It's a breathtaking design. The environment surrounding it gives off a beautiful feeling to it - as it's surrounded by mature trees, apple orchards, a beautiful water source, and mountain wildlife. The home seems to be made of two gabled structures, a garage and the main house, with a glazed breezeway. I really enjoy the palette of blackened steel, limestone and timber to the exterior's clean lines. The interior creates a very rustic yet modern design, and I would love to view it in person. There's just something about houses built with beautiful timber that gives me such a great warm, homey feeling. In the backyard, there are outdoor terraces where sounds of chickadees and historic water source create a beautiful escape. It's definitely a fave.

This is absolutely stunning, I love it. The mixed styles and mixed materials make me wish I lived in a home like that, or at least had a copy of the house plan to take inspiration from! The classic yet mixed materials for the mountain home appearance include wood and veneered fieldstone. The house is like a large glass box in shape and appearance. I really like the numerous spacious windows and open concept kitchen with a granite island. The stone and metal elements are repeated often throughout the home to really emphasize its "New Mountain" architecture. The two-story section of the HGTV Dream Home features a master suite, family room and guest rooms.They've even got a fireplace in the master bedroom! So jealous. For more information, I definitely recommend checking out the source website linked above. I'm ready to search for more great houses! 2018-04-12 19:10:40 https://www.hookedonhouses.net/2014/01/05/the-hgtv-dream-home-2014-in-lake-tahoe/ Mortehoe House http://www.favething.com/l-brown/great-houses/mortehoe-house/ http://www.favething.com/l-brown/great-houses/mortehoe-house/ I've always been into great houses, but when I came across an article for the Mortehoe House located on the Devon Coast, I truly fell in love. Created by McLean Quinlan Architects, this home is clad in green oak boarding and weathered stone. It seems to be a rather simple gabled house from the outside, but the inside took my breath away. There is a central stair that divides the interior into two different spaces. In one, there is a main living room, and the other is shared between a laundry and mudroom. I can just imagine how much beautiful natural light the large glass panels let in, with a nice view of the garden in the back. The pitch roof allows for a double height room, and the upper level features four bedrooms and one master suite. The view from the master suite must be simply amazing. It is perched above the ground floor, which allows you to gaze upon the sea below. It sounds like a dream, and rightfully so. I dream of living in a house like this some day! 2018-03-28 13:22:57 Remembrance Day http://www.favething.com/l-brown/news-stories/remembrance-day/ http://www.favething.com/l-brown/news-stories/remembrance-day/ November 11 is a day we remember.

However, their two-year-old found the painting during his absence and painted her own version of the subject. Inessa Garmash, not wanting Michael to be upset, fixed the painting, packed it up and gave it to him to submit. Michael handed the painting over for review and was told it was his best work ever. He was surprised to see the "new" painting and immediately recognized his wife's hand. Since then, Michael and Inessa Garmash have worked together creating paintings, stained-glass windows, mosaics and drawings. 2013-07-22 19:31:43 http://my.opera.com/amarys2art/albums/showpic.dml?album=7636832&picture=113913182 Great House Plan http://www.favething.com/l-brown/great-houses/great-house-plan/ http://www.favething.com/l-brown/great-houses/great-house-plan/ The architecture of this great house plan is beautiful.
