Need thoughts on this plan for primarily 1 person household
I have the bids back from the builder, and while they are within my budget they are near the top of my budget so I'm wondering if I should go a little smaller so I don't have to worry about compromising on the finishes. The vast majority of the time it will be just me in the house. My older son, has autism so I did choose a walkout lot in the event I may eventually need to put in an in-law type suite if his supported housing were ever to fall through.
This plan is about 100 sq ft smaller than the plan I originally selected. I would still change a few things- roof to be a simple gable, and if possible I would prefer to have the master face the back. Thoughts on a house with only 1 bath on the main level? I would rough-in another bath in the basement.
I did also find a smaller version of my original plan that reduces the size of the kitchen, dining area and living room by 2' and the kitchen layout becomes a peninsula so that's the other option I'm considering. My furniture would still fit in the smaller spaces. The rest of the plan stayed the same.
Thanks in advance.
