We have 2 children. Our home is in an ideal location, has a fantastic water view and a small mother in law cottage to the side of the property. In short, we really like the house and would prefer not to move. With two kids now, we need bedrooms! We can renovate and add space but I am concerned about the lead - I know our house has lots of it. I see our options as either renovation or move to another home so we can have proper living space. I think we would have trouble selling our small house in this economy so that makes renovation look good (I've got the funds and friends in construction who will accept barters) but with two small kids, my most important priority is to protect their developing brains. How realistic is it to renovate an old home and still protect my children?
