My wife and I been house hunting for the past few months. We finally found a house that we both like and our parents are pointing out all the bad things. For some reason her parents are stuck up on the fact that there's no bulkhead to the basement. It's not a finish-able basement so it's just for storage, and the furnace, water heater, etc. They're concerned about what would happen if/when something breaks down there. We say it got down there, it'll get back up. I don't know. Is that a stupid thing to be hung up on, or is that a real issue (not having a bulkhead)? I figure somebody here is in contracting and has had to deal with basement access.
