I would love to build a tropical looking outdoor bungalow and a huge botanical rock garden surrounding it.

Armed with my useful knowledge and the profits from some "lucky" investments, I would buy neglected old houses and return them to their former glory, starting with my great-grandparents gothic style farmhouse and my great-great-great-grandfather's log cabin.
I have to say that going back in time and giving previous self a kick would definately be how i would use a time machie. My parents always wanted to buy me a run down place for me to do up and live in when I was at uni with my uni mates paying me rent. If only I had listened to them!!

Mainly the money really, skills can be learned over time, but saving money is a lot harder to do

Dream project would be a 500ish gallon salt water fish tank. I would love to have one big enough to have a stingray and some small sharks. Would be pretty expensive and my biggest drawback right now is convincing my wife. Don't think she likes the idea of having that much water in our basement.
