Location: The land of maple syrup and beavers.
I live in a hamlet of about 25 houses that is named after a city in England, in a house that has been cobbled together in phases over about 150 years.

I feel like it is only fitting that it have a proper name.

Nothing of "manor" or "villa" stature, surely, but a good name. Like Briar Rose Cottage. But not that because it's not really a cottage and I've not got any roses on the property.

It's currently yellow, but that may change one day. We live right on a highway so there's no point in naming it after the view (Wayward Trash doesn't really have such a ring to it). The trees on our property are mostly maples, the flowers that grow the best for me are my peonies and my clematis (but both of those are just a bit too, uh, anatomical for me to name a house after), and obviously my house is full of dogs. The old church for the area, as well as the old town hall, share property lines with us.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

That made me think of a patchwork quilt. Maybe you can name it something in that vein?

Patchwork Cottage (and call it the PC), etc.

The Yellow House - so that in the future, when it might not be yellow, you can come up with suitably mysterious reasons as to why it is called that.

I second mumbles' reggaeton airhorn sound suggestion.
