    Smaller footprint = usually means smaller utility bills, lower property taxes, less to clean, less to furnish. The cons you’ve listed can be converted to pros with some tweaking. jmho

    Happy House Hunting, Bee!

    Upstairs laundry + bigger kitchen is all I needed to read!

    CrazyChihuahuaLady:  Congrats on the soon to be new home! I picked the 1700 model mainly because the laundry room is upstairs. Functionally, that would work best for me. I personaly don’t want to lug the clothes up and down stairs when the bedrooms are up there any way.

    I would go for bigger master and bigger kitchen.

    I agree with Kate – a bigger kitchen is ALWAYS better (think holidays and parties), and upstairs laundry makes life soooooo much easier.

    Would you go for the three or four bedroon layout with the 1,870?

    Congrats!! We close on our first home, and we also built it, on Friday!! Oh, and were planning our wedding in May, were crazy! It’s been such a long process and has really tested my patience haha. Be sure you stay on top of them every step of the way. I would chose the one with the laundry upstairs. I wish ours had that, I’m really not looking forward to dragging it up and down the stairs haha. Good luck with everything!

    I think this depends upon your lifestyle (or what you want your life to look like, anyway). Are you going to spend a lot of time sitting on the porch in summer? Do you spend a lot of time/or want to spend a lot of time cooking/relaxing in your kitchen? Do you want that bathtub? Do you have dogs/kids that are messy and a mudroom would be really helpful? Do have a lot of clothes for the bigger closet? 

    You need to figure out what your priorities are. I fell in love with our house when I saw the soaking tub in the master bath. And I’ve used it like crazy and I’m happy every time I climb into it all full of bubbles. Picture what you want your life to look like in the house, and go from there.
