Sometimes we get a chance
A chance to start from scratch and build something worthy of calling an "ultimate home." A chance to ensure that the security of our family is just as well accounted for as the comfort, and energy efficiency of a home.
The Secure Home by Joel Skousen is a great read for those who've purchased property or want to purchase property and want to build a retreat for themselves and their family.

They even have a section in the back for recommended equipment and retailers.
They even update their equipment and retailers list on their website so you can keep up to date with recent changes.
You can't ask for much more
It doesn't matter if you're building a new home or want to remodel you existing one, this book has it all. I personally enjoyed the section on planning as their was a lot I found out that I didn't know.
Do yourself a favor and get this book. It will make a great investment and will probably show you flaws that you can change in your own designs so you home is as safe as it can be.
