If you were designing an ideal house plan, what features would you want, and which would you avoid?

Location can be very important. Climate, another.
The kitchen should not be a thruway, I agree.
When we built out new house, we had ten double socket plugs put in the kitchen. The builder probably thought we were a little whacky, but it is very convenient. Older houses were built at a time when we had far fewer electric or electronic devices.
A good roof is so important, I think we almost forget about it until there's a problem.
We lived in a similarly planned house when our kids were growing up. I liked having the master suite away from the other bedrooms, too.
