While they’ve bickered, the house has deteriorated. But they have an alternative: Call a cease fire and upgrade what they have: Put in energy-efficient appliances, update that pink-tiled bathroom, and give the place a fresh paintjob. Neither spouse may be  fully satisfied, but they’ve made the house a lot more pleasant to live in. [TaxVox/TPC]
