Help with Custom Build Floorplan - Advice Needed

Hi Houzz, looking to borrow from your collective knowledge. Sharing a first floorplan sketch for a custom home. We will ultimately work on the exterior elevation to make this a “modern farmhouse” but we want to get the layout right first.

Not custom built in the past. Current home was existing construction and my first home was production built (cookie cutter).

Aiming for roughly 3,000 sq ft. Needs to have a master suite on the opposite side of the kiddos. Also want the garage on the other side of house from master suite. Adding a bit of complexity, we also don’t want the kids to share a wall with the kitchen/dining so they can have some peace and quiet at night.

As for the plan, the master seems big and master bath seems small.

We want the laundry off master closet, but accessible for the kids. Not a fan of this pass-though closet into foyer though.

Think we will want to put a large pantry behind kitchen and expand mudroom.

Garage seems to be overly prominent in the front, agree?

With all that spelled out, what else are we missing? What should we be thinking about? This is iterative and this is a great start, but the more thoughts the better end product for sure.
