A good starting point for designing a house of any size is to read the two books by Sarah Susanka. She advocates building "not so big" houses. Even if you contemplate building a large house, many of the ideas found in the books will be of greta value.
The following is from http://www.notsobighouse.com/
"The inspiration for The Not So Big House came from a growing awareness that new houses were getting bigger and bigger but with little redeeming design merit. The problem is that comfort has almost nothing to do with how big a space is. It is attained, rather, by tailoring our houses to fit the way we really live, and to the scale and proportions of our human form."
