Hey there Rocks... welcome to TFP :handwave:
On your plan these are my suggestions:
-Make the minimum depth (water depth, you want to specify) at 3.5', if not 4'. One can't swim laps in 3' without scraping knuckles, and its not a comfortable height to stand in, really.
- Upsize the filter. You can't really go to big, but the larger the cartridges are the fewer times you have to clean them per season.
-Full length steps are wonderful... little ones hang out on them, they provide wet seating for folks just sitting and chatting.
-Go Robot. We can hook you up with a dealer that sells cheaper than your pool builder.
-You will want the Intellicenter and Intelliflo pump package, to save money and have the most up date system.
-Do NOT get an SVRS pump. Very annoying and problematic feature.

Keep us update and we'd love to see pics of the build.
