"When the rug is pulled out from under our feet, how do we keep a roof over our heads?"
* How can we house more people within existing buildings? How might buildings be modified to make it easier for larger groups to cohabit?
* How will we make old houses more energy efficient and eco-friendly?
* How will we adapt when elements of infrastructure and public services become unreliable or fail altogether? E.g., garbage pickup, water, snowplowing, fuel delivery, electricity, police and fire services.
* How will we keep warm? Are there practical alternatives to gas or oil heat?
