Home is where the heart is, but many find it a challenge to visualize and actually own a home that resembles just the home one dreamt of. A new guide, “Dream It, Own It” by Patries Ramkaran now introduces the world to a well-researched and logical method to make the process seamless and perfect, down to the last details.
A home is ‘a place to become yourself’, said Theo Pelletier. “Dream It, Own It” is a guided journal to owning one’s dream home and reaching one’s full potential. The guide, a product of hard research work, takes the reader on a journey, and offers tools, methods and how-to tips to find the home of one’s dreams. The book includes chapters on sizing, home floor finishes, ceilings, choosing the best location, tips for reducing costs, along with check lists, pictures, activities and blank spaces to ideate, as well as a skeletal framework on the logical stages involved in choosing the perfect home.
“Many people find it a challenge to figure out the ‘how’ of choosing their dream home, while some try to reshape their dream home into what they consider more realistic. Even home checklists can fail as users do not let their true desires come to the surface. Dream now, and I will show you how to make it all come to reality!” says Patries Ramkaran.
Among other things, “Dream It, Own It” introduces the readers to a novel and power method to realize their dream home. The method is visualization, and gives us the power to activate the creative subconscious mind, giving rise to creative ideas. The images created elicit a response from us and help us to take action and achieve the desired results. “Dream It, Own It” is a guide and reference point that answers all the common questions, challenges and doubts that home seekers face all over the world.
“Let your imagination be your guide. Be the architect of your imagination! Permit me to take you on this beautiful ride and watch as we explore the stages involved – the design, the sketch, construction, authority approval, and cost estimates. We’ll even touch on details of each room – the colors, the design, ceiling design, floor finishes, and even the size,” says Patries.
