My wife’s enthusiasm in 23 years ago. But, such was life. She wanted a two story house with basement (three of our four kids lived at home), while I tried to get one floor and a full finished basement. You ought to hear her complain about cleaning too big a house today! She wanted a master bath upstairs, another full bath upstairs and one in the basement. Oh, and just a half bath on the main floor. In fall 2012, I had a serious accident and could barely walk, and climbing stairs was impossible. So, that winter, we took out a closet and added a walk-in shower to the half bath. $7,500.
Nothing to do with OP really, just a couple of our experiences.
