Miranda Lambert has a lot to think about when building her new home with husband, Blake Shelton.

That’s because the country singer is keeping her 15 rescue animals in mind.

"I’ve been saving inspiration [for the house] on Pinterest. A friend of mine recently said, ‘I can see your Pinterest boards, and all you have on there are dog rooms,’" she revealed in the June issue of Country Living magazine, in which she serves as the first-ever guest editor.

However, the singer, 31, said that her new home doesn't have to be perfect. She’s used to living in a fixer-upper.

“Growing up, my house was basically condemned when we got it, but my mother was determined to make it awesome,” she explained. “It had mismatched carpet, and the halls were creaky. But those little things that were imperfect were what made it perfect.”

“It’s funny, because I had friends with really nice houses -- with pools -- and they always wanted to come to our house. I think our home just had love,” she added.

There are a few amenities that Lambert and Shelton's new home must have, however. One is a garden.

"This year, we’re planting tomatoes and strawberries to make jam," she said. "I have a little downtime this summer, so I’m looking forward to this task.”

The other is that it must be built in the country.

“There’s something calming about looking out at wide-open spaces and trees as far as you can see. The country is perfect for letting your mind drift to a creative place,” she explained. “I write best when I’m home on my porch with my guitar.”
