Haha! Your post had me cracking up picturing that
I wanted to point out that you're the 5th+ person to mention specifically "spiral" staircase. Does anyone ever have a regular ol staircase? I know mine are always spiral...
What say ye, great ATS dream interpreters!?
Yes, I have had the old house dream many times - I love that dream! It's always a house I have just bought, and I'm going through it, and finding all kinds of cool rooms I didn't know were there when I bought it. I never knew it was a common dream.
Another recurring dream I have had is a little embarrassing, but... in this dream, I am desperate to go to the bathroom, so I have to go to a public restroom. When I go into the restroom, it is this horrible, nasty, disgusting place, with no doors on the stalls, and there is all kinds of nasty "stuff" on the floors and in the toilets. But, I am forced to use it because I have to go soooo bad. It's horrible - I hate that dream. What's weird is that when I wake up from those dreams, I don't have to go to the bathroom, which is what you would think would be causing a dream like that. Well, one day my mom and I were travelling together on a road trip, and we both had to stop at a convenience store restroom. This restroom was pretty nasty, and I mentioned to my mom that it reminded me of a recurring dream of mine. She told me she has the exact same recurring dream. I never knew. Anyone else have this disgusting dream?
The earliest memory I have of this dream is age 4. So what could a 4 year old possibly be working out mentally?

I have had this dream as well. Victorian home, hidden staircases that are spiral and I have had to squeeze through them. Some ended with no room, just a wall.
Wonder what the squeezing means?

Forget all that dream interpretation bs. "Oh the house signifies your feeling of stress". F*** off.

Any ideas on why I'm always renovating the kitchen? I have my own, but would like to hear your thoughts.
I tend to dream about the house I grew up in which was a bit haunted. And in the dreams it's usually ghosts and stuff in the dream. ahhhhh

Your post made me think of the fact I've never seen a ghost in any of my dreams! Anything evil or bad usually just comes as a bad feeling or running away from something but you can't run... aahh that's frustrating!!
I dream of houses too, but my dreams seem to be different from yours.
Mine are Nightmares.
I've got a collection of about 5 houses, none that I've ever lived in, that I've been
dreaming about for years.
I don't have feelings of curious excitement, but instead absolute terror and fear.
Unlike most of you who find new rooms to explore, my houses are exactly the
same every single time, and I know what awaits me behind each and every door of
all 5 houses.
It's like a horror flick being replayed over and over again only I'm not watching
it, I'm living it and the amount of terror never diminishes, it only seems to
get stronger. I cannot change a thing, I must go through the motions exactly the same
every time. And even though I know everything before hand, it all seems NEW, if
that makes any sense.
The moment I lay down and see one of my dream houses I know I am in for a terrible
Anyone else have this disgusting (bathroom) dream?
OK, enough now, you guys are really weirding me out. I have the "nasty bathroom" dream too, more or less exactly as you described.
The "house in disrepair" dream too. Mine usually involves leaky plumbing or roof that I can't figure out how to fix.
Also the "undisturbed rooms as time capsules" dream, this one is usually the same house dream to dream, and there's a wall that I can move to access another unused part of the house which is fully furnished but with old outdated furniture and appliances. It has its own kitchen and windows and I'm always surprised that I don't notice this area from outside the house. I also often wonder why I don't "use" this part of the house for living in along with the rest of the house.
It's totally nuts how certain elements of the dreams being described in this thread are not just close, but EXACTLY the same.
Mind = Blown!
Thanks for this thread, OP!edit on 7-11-2013 by tjack because: I felt like adding to my post.
Yes I have this recurring dream too! I've never thought to look it up before but it seems it is quite a common one!
In mine it is not always the same house and not always an old house, but I know it is my house. I usually find a whole extra bunch of rooms, passageways and stairs. The rooms are not well decorated and a bit tatty and I find myself excited by the potential. I wonder if it means I feel I should be pushing myself further in life? I have never really thought about meaning.
In one of my versions of the house dream every room I enter is a dirty kitchen with a sink full of dishes.
When we were house hunting we looked at a house ( another Victorian) that had been turned into apartments and there were four kitchens in the house. I went through the house once just to be polite to the realtor but the whole time I couldn't wait to get out of there. Could you image having to tear out three kitchens as well as renovate the one remaining ???
I agree that the toilet dream details seem to be exactly the same from personal to person.

I've had the flying dream. I just gently push off the earth like you push off the wall of a pool to start a lap. I love those dreams but there is one tied to that where someone is picking me up over their head and they fall over backwards with me in their arms. I feel the anxiety of the fall from the moment the person starts to lift me. I try to fly but can't get up. I hate that dream.
