A very important aspect, the amount of light that enters the house depends on its orientation, design, and window placement. Consider the views as well. If you are fortunate enough to have beautiful views into the distance, then take advantage of this and plan for windows or French doors in a spot that allows you to appreciate this and provide added value.
How do you plan to entertain? Do you want a formal dinning room and traditional living room for large formal entertaining, or do you prefer small-relaxed family get-togethers? Study your house plan and lot space to see if it is possible to expand the house plan living space in the future.
House plans for flat building lots are less difficult and less expensive to build, although they are not always as eye-catching as a sloping lot. A sloping lot will allow you to tuck the garage under the house and possibly plan for a daylight basement.
Consider the resale value of your new home and how you can add value into the house plans for your future. Even though you are far from having it built, thinking ahead can not only improve your current lifestyle but can also result in realized gains later.
