Re: Stuck In The Middle?

More economical car maybe? I'd think the rental idea would be a no go if you can't make repairs because honestly things do get broken and you have a small time to repair them with a tenant in place. I don't know if you could qualify through a bank to buy another home and keep the one you have now or...

Re: Cold (freezing) basement

How about a small pellet stove to heat the space when you want to use it? They are pretty easy to vent and install air intakes. The bags of pellets are about 40 pounds each but if your basement is dry you could have them stored there. I don't know if it would be more pain than it's worth but you cou...
