Since we need to demolish it anyway, we try to re-imagine the basement layout as well, and how it might evolve over our lifetime. We’ll have to plan all of the plumbing, HVAC, and electrical to account for a re-positioned laundry room, an additional bedroom, and possibly adding laundry on the main level when we become elderly.
Our car develops enough mechanical problems that it becomes cost-prohibitive to keep. We decide to sell it. The ongoing cost of house repairs means that we won’t be able to replace this vehicle, so we reluctantly become a single-car family.
