Biggest thing is the Plan the Plan. Figure out all your needs for power. Include as much info about each device as possible such as Average Power consumption and Max draw. as weel if there are Eco settings. Depending on your required loads you may want to look a higer then 12V battery system to lessen the Current draws and that will also require step down converters for 12v appliances and lights.

Welcome to the time consuming adventure. My recommendation would be to expect multiple iterations of your plan because as you learn from early projects you will change things up. So for me I have been starting with designing and building smaller projects like portable phone charger packs and AmmoBats and am just now moving onto proper powerwalls. Even with that and multiple iterations of the smaller projects I am now on revision 2 of my powerwall design and still coming up with improvement. I look forward to when you create a new thread for your project.
