How big of a house can you fit into 3000 square feet?  A 5 bedroom, 5 ½ bath modern farmhouse with all the amenities (but none of the overbearing size) of the dreaded McMansion.  A test case to maximize living without breaking the budget.  Formal living room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast/family room form the basis of the first floor with a generous master bedroom, mudroom/laundry and covered dining porch completing the picture.  Masterful design minimized circulation space, adding all possible room back into the living spaces
