*An easily accessible furnace that is also in a clean space. My furnace is underneath my house in the dirt crawlspace (that runs about 2-3 feet high). Hedious to work on and awful to get into. I always have to apologize to my repair people.

*about a gazillion, trillion whatevers of insulation. (I don't know what it's called, but I do know that I have needed and wanted more insulation in all my houses.

*A handicap accessibile bathroom/shower. I want it because I have big dogs and can't lift them in and out of the tub easily. Having the whole area tiled, with no tub rim, would make washing (and their subsequent shaking off) very very easy.

*radiant floors. A fantasy of mine -- warm floors.

What FUN!
