Hi! Long time reader, first time poster here.
So my wife and I are going to be trying to buy the house we currently live in, which was built in 1952 by her great grandparents and currently owned by her grandfather.
We’re planning a total renovation, like down to the studs, with an addition etc.
The house is in terrible shape overall as well just not being big enough. Anyway the main renovation or whether or not that’s a good idea is not what I’m interested in, that’s happening. What I am interested in is making this house have as many modern creature comforts as possible. I’ve already got on my list to add networking cable to every room, obviously all new wiring at the same time…new plumbing etc etc. I intend to have heated bathroom floors, intercoms (gotta be able to yell at the kids), and camera security.
What can I add to make our lives better and more convenient while I have the whole house opened up? I want a “smart house”, and I assume there’s no better time to do that than while the walls are nothing but studs. So please all suggestions are welcomed and I’ll add them to my plans if I like em.
Edit to add: were in Southern California so no basements or extreme weather or anything
