After you've surveyed your property and its surroundings, it's time to look inward to the needs and desires of yourself and your family. If your design takes the environment into account but ignores your personal needs, it's a failure. In this section, you get to be selfish (in an altruistic and sustainable way, of course).
Don't forget to involve the other family members, including kids. Assuming they're willing, everyone will probably enjoy the process, you'll like the company, and the eventual outcome will be better suited to everyone because they've played a role in it. Besides, you won't have to take all the blame when something goes haywire.
