Close to what I did here.... my first concern would be......poop. Yup, poop. You'll want a septic system installed, not just a drain into the swamp. Po) Not legal anywhere I know of and not sanitary at all.....
I'd think about that, then get some good 3D architect type software and put in your measurements and add rooms, etc. from there. I like Punch!Pro for software, but there are many others. The pic below is an example of Punch!pro.

How much time to devote to it do you have? $$$ resources? It costs a bit to do what I did, even doing it ALL myself it still ran into many thousands. But I now have a beautiful 3 bdrm, 1 and 1/2 bathroom home! Po)
Your major concerns should be plumbing, electricity and heating/cooling. There's also..... venting, insulation, and since you don't say where you're from, I can only guess at that.

If you don't have a photo resizing program download this program, it is free and easy to use. Here is a link for you.

http://www.irfanview.com/main_download_engl.htm

For $15,000 you aren't going to get far, I don't think. Just busting the slab and roughing in plumbing and a septic system is going to set you back pretty good. I sure don't want to discourage you at all and I hope you can get all done you want to.
