We pour over these books in front of the tube every evening.
I thought picking a house plan would be fun, and it was at first. But now it's just plain stressful.
Since this will be our forever home, we want to plan for the future. Parties, family get togethers, and even babies (!)
The layout seems to be the most important part to us at the moment.
And then there are so many other choices. I like craftsman and the new american look, Adam leans more toward more elegant looking homes. So, we have to find a middle.
One story, two story, story and a half? Brick, siding, stone, or a combination?
Do we really need a 4th bedroom or den/study area. Do we want the master on the first or second floor?
Not to mention trying to compare cost difference and staying within our budget. (Trying our hardest to avoid PMI)
Have any house planning stories to share? What is your dream layout?
I'd really like a balcony off the master for wine sipping in my bathrobe!
