Shortly I hope to begin discussing the design plans for my new house. I'm at the point where I can start thinking about 'add-ons' for the house. The only ones I have settled on so far are to upgrade the insulation and windows, as well as add an extra row of brick to the basement to make it more usable. OK, I guess it's a little open ended, but here's a general question for everyone:

If you were building a house, what one upgrade would you add? Upgraded appliances? Hardwoods? A/C? I'm trying to consider things 'behind the drywall'. Right now it's a clean slate, throw me some ideas!


Extra extra insulation, argon-filled windows, passive solar, 'air-lock' entry, generator, radiant heat.
