Nuts, nuts, nuts! LOL

As you state, the problem is leverage. It bites you when you are most helpless. Leverage gives you an "efficient" portfolio but not a "secure" portfolio.

I would refi the house at a lower rate. Put the money you save into your portfolio. But don't put your house eggs into the portfolio basket. Keep them separate.

BTW, rates are low and as soon as they pop, the bonds drop.

Anyway, that's what I would do.
