A near perfect description of what makes a perfect house, beyond practical issues such as storm-proofing; similar to the wonderful Italian song Voglio una casa. 

‘His house was perfect, whether you like food, or sleep, or work, or story-telling, or singing, or just sitting and thinking best, or a pleasant mixture of them all.  Evil things did not come into that valley.’
