We looked at a few back at the old place, I liked the Generac and then the Kohlers. We've since moved since it so it never happened, but that's the brands I settled on. The one piece of advice I did read was to buy one larger than you'll need. Totally dependent on your size house of course. I did the calculator and overestimated everything, and then decided on the 22k model, whole home. Overkill, yes but I wasn't that much more than the 16K.
When doing my research, what I saw that I did like is that a few people put them kinda far away from the house, over by a shed so it would be hidden from the curb and the noise wouldn't bother you if you were on them for an extended period.
We don't have NG, but I did notice that NG or LP gave you better/worse performance. I don't recall which was better/worse, but there was a difference.
And congrats on the house!
EDIT: One more thing, and don't forget--when you're budget you'll need about grand for a concrete pad depending on where it is and how big you want it.

I would LOVE a prep room like that, but unfortunately I already see the signs that when my kids become teenagers that room will be called the "pantry."
My 9 year old is skinny as a rail, but can pack away 1lb of pasta like its nothing. And still want more.
