Did(or will) any of you make a birth plan for homebirth?

I was planning to make a standard one for just in case I was transported to the hospital. Stuff like "no epidural" ,"delay cord cutting", etc... will be on it.

However my doula suggested I make one for a homebirth as well. She said it would include things such as "lock the cats in the laundry room", "Light the scented candle when I am 4-7 cm dialated", etc...

What kinds of things would all of you suggest for a homebirth plan?

*random information that my be useful*
There will be 2 midwives, a doula, my husband, and possibly a 16-year old watching two 6 month olds in our home that day. We also have 3 cats, and have no intention of telling anyone I'm in labor so we won't be expecting any drop in guests.
