Do You (Literally) Dream About a Bigger Apartment?

Yesterday, we found ourselves in the middle of one of those conversations where people start talking about their recurring dreams. A friend who showed up late to an appointment mentioned that he'd overslept, dreaming that he and his girlfriend shared a 5,000 square foot loft in the city. Another friend had recurring dreams about finding a hidden door in his home that led to a huge extra room he'd never known about. Turns out, dreams like these are pretty common for city dwellers...

We even found a good question on Apartment Therapy about the "door to another room" dream. One of our friends said that the dream is a classic example of wish fulfillment, while there's another Jungian theory arguing that hidden parts of the home represent unexplored aspects of ourselves.

We're wondering: have any of you had similar dreams? What do you think they mean?
