The pain of being a home owner never ends. I had decided that it was time to start the basement remodeling project. The prior owners attempted to re-finish the basement, but did a horrible job. There needed to be a complete demo of the existing junk so we could start from scratch. I ordered a dumpster and had a friend over to rip it apart. After the the fun was over, I had a few surprises behind the walls and on the floor. There were asbestos tiles and we had foundation bowing. Yet again, more repairs to be done to ensure this house's longevity.



I bring my house up because whenever I get a computer chassis to review, that's the first thing that pops into my head. A house is kind of like a computer case. There needs to be a solid foundation to ensure structural integrity. There needs to be a good amount of space to fit whatever is needed, with room to grow. That space has to meet the basic needs of the buyer. For a house, that would be a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and living room. For a case, that would be a motherboard mount, PSU space, 5.25" bays, 3.5" bays. The only major difference would be that a house needs proper insulation to retain heat and cooling, while a case needs proper ventilation, as all that is generated inside is heat. Everything else is just internal and external "features".
