We added a bathroom in our basement and we have three car garages; we are very glad for those practically.

Thanks to the Fed Chairman I just maintain and/or repair items as they break or wear out. No fancy remodels or upgrades for Casa de Shorebreak "for the forseeable future".

With the flattening real estate market due to mortgage rate hikes recently, any improvement on existing house may prove to be non-profitable; unless such improvement is absolutely for necessasity.
