|Comment||John, Thanks for the information. We're in Michigan and we did surrender the home's title to the Secretary of State (i.e. DMV). Now I need to follow up to see if that changes the classification with the insurance company. I doubt it, but we'll see. About the remodeling. The basement was deliberately built to code. Given that we will eventually need to rebuild, we're probably going to opt for a thorough windproofing (Tyvek) and a steel roof. Minimal expense now for increasing the R-value and reusable roofing materials for later. Thanks for your help. David|
