Where to find answers

We hope that you have found some answers on our website, but we can't include answers to every question. Here we hope to point you to a place where you can find other answers. The emphasis here is not on providing stock (usually useless) answers referring to 'average' houses or families (with their 2.3 kids). Rather to provide a way to evaluate your particular situation.

We intend that this page increase to be as helpful as possible, to that end, we need your help with questions. If you have a question not answered here, please email it to us, and we will endeavor to find you a way to an answer.
