Lloyd,
The decision about a hot water heater/outside shower, etc. should be made early because the plumbing would be very difficult (if not virtually impossible) to add as an after thought. The same thing, but to a lesser degree, holds true for options like extra 12V or 110V outlets and lighting.
As Alistair mentioned, a Fantastic Fan should be on your "must have" list.
The majority opinion, over many years, has been to include as many options as your budget can possibly afford because it increases the desirability of your unit when it comes time to sell.

We hope you are enjoying the process...

Kurt, Ann,

Great advice...I think you may have hit the bottom line for me....look at our finances and get as much as we can afford and think of it as an investment....when we sell, it will be more attractive to buyers. I think you have answered all my questions..thank you..

Lloyd

Well, I'm not sure I'd go that far, unless you're talking about it being an investment in bringing pleasure to your life, for years to come.

I'm spending a lot of time on this issue at present, working out just how soon I can afford to retire in comfort. My standards for comfort are probably quite a bit lower than many others, but that 5,500 sq. ft. house on a quarter acre with the hot tub and pool won't make them feel better, if they're dead.

I hope you make this purchase and end up with nothing but a feeling of satisfaction.
