Ann and Dominic Wiker loved life in their Federal Hill home. As a professional couple in their 30s, the neighborhood was ideal - they could walk to most attractions, shops and restaurants. It seemed there was always something fun going on outside their door. Then parenthood happened, and with it came the idea of moving to the suburbs. They would move, but they wouldn't leave Federal Hill. Nine years later, the Wikers - mom, dad, 9-year old Alex and 7-year old Tommy - have, to their delight, become a poster family for raising children in an urban environment.

Where should you locate the laundry facilities when you're building or remodeling? Didn't used to be a question: Washer and dryer went in the basement. If the house didn't have a basement, they went into a separate laundry room, usually somewhere near the back door.Then designers and builders thought, hey, the biggest part of laundry is linens, and where are the linens? Where the bedrooms are. So why lug heavy sheets and towels all over the house; why not put the washer and dryer on the second floor, or near the bedrooms?

The renovated rowhouse at 114 Warren Ave. in Federal Hill combines the best elements of city living, from its views to its desirable location. This three-story brick home, built in 1900, is listed at $875,000. The interior is spacious, measuring more than 3,000 square feet. But perhaps more impressive is what's outside: a a 40-by-15-foot rooftop deck that provides a breathtaking view of the city skyline. At ground level, five steps open onto an entry vestibule with paneled wainscoting, crown molding, a domed ceiling light and marble floor.

Debbie Schwartz has given her upstairs laundry room the star treatment. Her super-capacity washer and dryer sit on marble floors and bask in the light of twin bronze chandeliers. A Romanesque sculpture stands on one of the wide, polished marble counters designed for folding laundry. The large room has the same cabinets as her gourmet kitchen, as well as a tile stall to dry delicates. There's even a garden view. It's a workroom, yes, but, by making it elegant, the chore feels less like drudgery.

If a husband takes on more chores, does a grateful wife repay his efforts with more sex? It might depend on which chores. Lori Gottlieb, a psychologist and author of "Marry Him: The Case for Settling for Mr. Good Enough," suggested in a New York Times Magazine article that partners in so-called peer marriages, or more equal marriages, report having less sex than partners in marriages where the husband and the wife perform more traditional duties....

I have been reading a lot of anti-cat rhetoric in The Sun for some time now ("The destructive invasive species purring on your lap," Feb. 26). If cats are dangerous to birds and other creatures - mice, rats, toads and the like - why are so many of them still running and flying around my house? My cat has eradicated dozens of mice and other rodents from my basement, laundry room and yard. He does occasionally get a bird or two, but so what? It hasn't stopped them from destroying the paint on my car with their excrement, or jamming up my chimney and vents with their nests There may be ecologically sensitive areas in this country where feral and domestic cats are destroying vital wildlife habitats.

Back in December at Language Log , the urbane Mark Liberman commented on a text distorted by a ham-fisted attempt to convert British English to American, saying, "God save us from such copy editors. " That provoked a spirited defense of copy editors in the comments by the doughty Dick Margulis. They leave me with an impulse to explain to my civilian readers what goes on in copy editing.(Colleagues, you can lean back on your oars for a while.) Think of a copy editor as a parent trying to clean up a teenager's room.

The house across the street is missing one of its owners. Bob Green, age 61, died of a heart attack Oct. 28. After his memorial service, my husband and I joined others at the house, where he and his wife have raised their three children. Standing in the living room as people poured in, I thought of previous incarnations of the house and of owners I have known since my family moved across the street in 1959. A 1913 photograph shows this substantial stucco house with Cold Spring Lane a narrow road and trolley tracks in the Roland Avenue median.

Tax season is upon us, and if you're like me, you still haven't crunched the numbers but are hoping for a nice refund. Good news, the odds are in your favor. According to stats posted on the IRS website, 76 percent of Americans filing individual income tax returns get refunds, and the average refund is around $3,000. One way to put that cash to good use is to reinvest in your home. After all, a big chunk of the refund may be coming from your mortgage interest deduction. But just how far will that $3,000 get you?

A widow now for three years, Joanne Adleberg continues to find sanctuary in the Pikesville condominium she and her husband purchased in 2004. When their house and three acres of land off Greenspring Avenue became too much to keep up, they were the first to move into the new condominium complex of Stevenson Commons, and as time went by, both found the building to be very people-friendly. The couple purchased the building's largest unit — 2,750 square feet — at a cost of $475,000.
