Recurring Dream is Making Me Crazy!

HELP ME!  I've been having this dream almost every night for years  - what the heck does it mean?

We are moving into a large unkempt home in the country or a very large city lot.  It usually has lots of outbuildings, sometimes a pool, usually gardens, with all in need of some TLC.  Throughout the dream I'm very excited about the construction magic Johnny C will work on the place, but also frustrated because I know it'll take a while.  And all of them have a KILLER kitchen and dining room, and lots of bedrooms for kids and visitors.  Often the house belongs to my friend Amy P and has a ballroom in the attic.

Here are some general images:






Inside the house and outbuildings are piles of clutter - some of it wonderful and some of it junk, but we must sort through all of it.  It's as though the previous occupant died or ran away and left everything behind.



What do you think?

In dreamville (so I've heard) a house represents you. Note the pics and look at the pic of Biltmore on my Facebook....and the mountains in one pic.
Let me think about it....but I do have some ideas...

your dream represents my REAL life :~P

also, I like the second picture and the last one, although that last one is heavy on the Victorian decoration.

You're working through family issues through your subconscious.

Wow. I've had similar dreams.

Go now and find "Gone Away Lake" by Elizabeth Enright. A fantastic children's book, which I believe took place in the Driftless Area not far from where you are. It's related to the topic.

The fact that you have this dream repeatedly is fascinating.

I really wonder if it's a reflection of you trying to sort out all the components of your life and trying to make sense of it.

I wonder if these dreams started before or after you guys knew your housing situation was going to change?

It's probably about sex.

I used to have house dreams all the time. I would buy a house and it would turn into this huge thing with all kinds of crazy rooms. I haven't had them so much since I actually bought a home and stopped renting.

In the dream analysis books I have read, it seems like a house represents yourself or your mind? Interesting!!
