A copy of the blueprints for my house were in a closet when I moved in 15 years ago, and before I leave them for the next owner, I am going to leave notes on them about the history of the people who have lived here (as far as I know it) and any improvements that were made and by whom, dates, etc., or anything they may need to know. (Like that the door on the laundry chute bangs when the basement door is closed and the furnace is running.)
