The size of your lot will determine the size and type of house you want. You couldn't build a mansion on say a quarter of an acre. On the other hand a one bedroom, single floor home would look strange on a lot that is two acres or bigger.

If you are lucky to have a basement, it can house the laundry room and your gym equipment or be a playroom/guest room.
