Hi,

I have tried several times to post this plan as a file to my construction journal but it is not working.

I thought perhaps I could post the link here.  We are considering building a modified version of this plan.  Any comments or suggestions would be helpful.  We would like more of a two-story facade - so that the two front bedrooms would have larger windows and better light. 

This plan also comes in a smaller version and a larger version.  We will probably take the smaller one and modify it 'up' to this one but customized for our needs & site.

Thanks!

Barbara

Hello,

When I posted this I should have said "feedback appreciated" :).  We were hoping that if any of you have built something similar you might have some good ideas to pass on or if you are in the trades helpful information or suggestions to pass on. 

In addition, when all the attic space and bonus space in this plan are finished it will be approx. 3750 sf.  This is likely the top end as far as our budget will allow based on my research - based on our home costing out at the higher end of the 'ballpark'. 

So, my question is for those people who have built before-is it worth it to stretch a little when building your 'dream house' or should we play it safe and go for something smaller?  Our 'pros' for going for the larger house:  it fits our site, it works for our family's needs and will work for future needs and we have alot of equity in our land so even with the larger home we will probably be in a 50% equity position. Also, for resale in our area it makes sense to have a larger home on acreage.  Our 'cons'...we currently have a small 15 year loan on the land and if we build smaller we could do so with cash and not have to refinance and be in a very good financial position. 

Your perspective, ideas and input are appreciated!

Thanks,

Barbara
