Turntable so you never have to back out work truck and a carwash in the garage.

I saw both features at a house recently.

Just built our retirement house. Small and simple. Nothing real fancy. It is a ICF home, heat in the floor (heated with water heater), metal standing seam roof, cedar (Vinyl) siding, and just big enough for the misses and me. LOVED last winters heating bills. Almost nothing for this area. Also a 42X72X14 (not big enough) metal building.

A hydraulic car and motorbike lift.

Sky lights everywhere.

I've been in quite a few homes where there will be one or two hydraulic lifts in the garage. Usually keeping the vintage cars stacked over one another, waiting for the next Sunday drive.

My husband and I are building our home right now. Things I really like about it are all the wiring for phones/tvs/computer are in the walls. We have a really decent sized mudroom that nobody but us will have to see which is awesome because they are times that we are coming home from work filthy. Laundry room is right on the main floor, has a deep sink with a hanging rack over it. A floor sink in a garage is great if you have pets to wash. We did the ICF basement and it is quiet down there. I would also say put in more lights than you think you will need, LED lights in closets, entryways, stairwells, mechanical rooms, pantry etc. It is a few more dollars up front but no more digging in the back of closets in the dark. If you are looking at it as a retirement home wider doors and backing for future installation of handrails is not a bad idea either.
