Searching For A Perfect Life 'In That House'

It's the ultimate in American fantasies: That a house can actually transform your life.

In her memoir, Life Would Be Perfect If I Lived In That House, Meghan Daum details the real estate dreams of her life, and muses on her ideas about "domestic integrity."

Daum packs a lot of meaning into owning the perfect home. "It's more than just the biggest purchase you'll ever make," she tells NPR's Rebecca Roberts.

Daum believes your home is a "repository for every ambition and anxiety... It's a container for all your goals and your tastes and what you want out of life."
