Here's a link to our house plan: eplans.com/gothic_revival. We loved the interior layout of the house and the country/Victorian exterior. It has great windows in the back to view the lake behind our house, and was laid out to fit our corner lot.

Changes that we made to the plan include: bumping out the master closet (tornado room) four feet, and we also added four feet to the living room to accommodate a firebox. The hallways were widened to be about 40" finished, an indoor mudroom was added just inside the entrance from the garage and the center island in the kitchen incorporates a microwave and a prep sink at wheelchair height. Upstairs in the bonus room we added attic access (to both sides), an exercise room (it's exercise for my daughter just to get up there) and another full bath. We had two fireplaces in a house the we used to live in in Southern California and are putting in two fireplaces in this house (both gas capable - the family room fireplace built to also burn wood).
We did learn a lesson in jumping the gun on clearing our lot before we signed the loan documents. Here in TN, there's a mechanic and material men clause to loans that states no work has been done prior to the loan being completed. The bank's lawyer says that after completion they'll (I guess we'll pay for it) post ads for 10 days requesting liens before closing. We'll have to factor that into our plans. They also require a signed, dated "Paid In Full" receipt from each sub.
