3. I always like to have a major project every year - 2016 it was building a new master bathroom, 2017 a bigger tank.
4. My sons are now old enough to help with a project like this, and that's both a good experience for us and great learning (structural, woodworking, plumbing, fluid dynamics ..... OK, may be that's a stretch).
5. Most importantly ..... just .... because!

And you work hard and you deserve it!
