Hello, I do like the plans! It seems to cover all your requirements while being simple (so hopefully less costly to build!). I think a lot of it has to do with your rear to North block, which makes everything that much easier .
Definitely go with double glazing, benefits will be worth it! We would also have the included underfloor heating in our design if it was single storey. Such a lovely gentle warmth.

Thanks. I’m hoping the simple design is a bit cheaper, giving me more money for the extras i want. I’m looking at radiators for the hystonic heating, rather than underfloor heating. With the cathedral ceiling i have read that hydronic heating is a better option.
Paid the remainder of my deposit today...still doesn’t seem real though. The hole in my account is real though!

Thanks. No kids here, but i agree a 4th bedroom helps with resale. I had intended to put cupboards in that room, just didn’t put then in the plan. I’ll likely put then on the wall that backs onto the lounge, meaning that part of the house can still be closed off.
