I would have more than "cough, coughed".
We only spent 6k more for our 1st home. I'd die if we spent that much. I'd un-geek him so fast he wouldn't know what hit him.
problem is... I'm a geek too... PLUS I made a deal with him that whatever he spent on electrical upgrades I could match it on kitchen upgrades Win-win
That's a good win-win. Yipee.
