What makes a great home?

when you build a home, what are 'must haves'?

Report as

The must haves when building a home are these: Quality construction by an experienced builder, the best windows and doors, insulation, good ventilation, high quality floors, good quality fixtures in bath and kitchen (don't settle on "builders grade"), floor plan to suit your needs. A bigger house does not make it a better house. Go for quality not quantity of rooms.

What makes a wonderful home is not the number of rooms or how it's furnished, it's the people who live in it, and their dynamic. If they're loving, respectful of one another, nurturing, gentle, and kind, then it could be a hovel and still be a wonderful home.

The people in it, the neighbours, the sense of home, the bills are being paid, the cleanliness (if you like messy.. Well ok! -I consider mess and dirt different :) and the storage of food. :D

Location, energy efficiency, and reflects your personality, not something you are copying from a magazine.
Don't forget life long living; always a full bath and bedroom on the first floor, incase someone becomes disabled or infirmed.

Form meets function. A house is just a house but a home reflects who you are as an individual. Being able to tune into your personality and successfully reflect that in your surrounding environment is a talent, however, you always know the moment you walk into a home where this has successfully been achieved because there is an indescribable sense of comfort and welcomeness as though it has been waiting there all along to accommodate you. This is becuase that home reflects the friend/family you are there to visit and that relationship that is comfortable and familiar to you has been pulled into its surroundings. www.jbiaonline.com

Foundation, and water resistance.. Keep the water away and any house can last indefinitely. And a close family helps too!!
