Solid surface countertops in the kitchen.
Solid surface walls in the bath/shower.
Several separate circuits for the kitchen.
Lights under all the kitchen cabinets.
Linoleum on the kitchen floor. (no tile and grout!)
Lots of electrical outlets in every room.
Heavy duty electrical outlets near the outside doors (regardless of how many exterior connections you put in).
Pella sliding glass doors with the mini blinds sandwiched between the glass. [a $$ purchase but perfect in the kitchen]
Ceiling fans in every room/area.

If you're a messy cook (or just lazy like I am), convert to electric cooking and get a solid surface cooktop where you can bubble and spill and burn, and not be lifting and cleaning all the time.

Got Kids? Look at the frig with the little access door on the frig side so they can open that and look at the milk or whatever and not warm the whole frig while they do it. We got one from Sears a few years ago. Maybe it was made by Frigidare. [another $$ but worthwhile purchase]
