    We have a slab in a house we bought and renovated. Things I learned is check the floor's level. We found out too late that wood or ceramic wouldn't work in most the house. We have it in the kitchen/family room area and both baths. Slabs also equal more bugs and ants. Ugh! A roll out height, basically on 2" X 6" base, deck that takes up the entire backyard but not side yard with fence costs a mint since you need someone other than Home Depot, etc. to build or rebuild them. We have professional grade firm pad under a super low, high density carpet. It's worn well but the carpet seems to always look like it needs cleaning after a few years. Move electrical plugs up about 6" and lower the thermostate controls to where the wheeler can waste sunlight or fossil fuels trying to stay warm.

        I'd like to see them too. And while more expensive them many brands I recommend Kraftmaid cabinetry because they use inside hinges allowing even the weakest hands to open drawers and doors. Then many have pull out shelves for pots and pans inside. Just don't lean on doors as inside hinges are not up to 200 pounds of anyone pushing on them.
