Hi - New to the building forum, but a couple of years ago, I got great ideas for our addition! We will soon be buying 6.5 acres in the country, and I have a pretty good idea of things that I want and don't want. I want a huge utility/mud room with dog bathing area off of the garage, as we have 3 kids and 2 huge dogs. I want a country kitchen and a large great room - no formal dining or family room. I want a computer "station" where we can line up a counter and cabinets and all three kids can have a computer and workroom to do schoolwork. Four bedrooms. I would also like a large screened in porch or 4 season room as we live in WI.
We are looking at building a 3000-3400 sf. home - farmhouse or country style.
Any suggestions where to begin looking?
