I know the topic of an 'reunion' movie has been hashed and rehashed many times. I am FOR IT!, and here are my humble plot fragment ideas.

It's 10 years later.
Tim and Jill still in love and devoted to each other -- which is the foundation of Home Improvement.
Tim and Al decided that one final 'Tool Time' was enough, and left it closed down 10 years ago.
Tim started a new business(?)/pastime -- a custom car shop called 'Car Time', or 'Tim Taylor Design', or (or something better). The shop basically runs itself, but Tim shows up occasionally to 'help' and provide guidance. Tim still builds his own hot rods in the garage -- bringing in friends and relatives to 'help'.
Jill is a successful psychologist, with an office down the street in Tim and Jill's rental house where Al used to live. Tim sometimes sneaks in to make some needed repairs during office hours.
Brad -to everyone's lasting amazement- is a lawyer in a nearby town. He and his wife have 2 kids, and boy and a girl. Many extended family interactions.
Randy is a roving research biologist -- analyzing problems (NOT! 'global warming') the world over.
Mark is a graphic artist / computer scientist, who has been working for Lucus Films, but is now moving back to Mi to start his own consulting / production company. A pending marriage influenced this decision.
Al and Trudy(?) are busy with various charity works. Two little Al's follow them around.
Harry (and Al) still have the hardware store.
Tim's and Jill's Moms (great characters) are still around, and active.
Wilson, alas is gone. Maybe he died (in a freak Kaber tossing accident?), or finally moved to the jungle (or Chicago). There are many moving (and funny) remembrances.
Tim and Jill have a new neighbor. Tim helps HIM with his frequent questions and problems (often drawing on Wilson's past help)
Amidst this happy background, Tim and Al decide to do a 'Tool Time' reunion. Chaos ensues. The hardest part turns out to be locating Heidi.
Total run time: at least 3 hours!

Come on, Tim, you've said, and everyone knows that Home Improvement is still your real home. A man who moves the old sets to his real business has got to go back!

This, to me, is your best plot device. They might even sneak in clips of Wilson pontificating from the original series. Wilson had more than a significant impact on the entire Taylor family, and even Al. After all, think about how many times he helped all of them, not just Tim. His insights were simply the stuff of legend. As for the rest of the series, it would seem to me to be simply a rehash of trite plotlines and tired rhetoric. I think it would bomb quickly. Think about After M*A*S*H . That series didn't even make it through a complete season before being cancelled.

Now a movie makes more sense to me, even without Wilson, I think there would be a significant amount of interest from the public on a one-time shot. Provided, of course, that all the original actors could be enticed to participate, sans Wilson, of course. But a weekly series? "I don't think so, Tim."

Why not letting the Wilson character die as well? I don't think anyone could fill Earls shoes on HI! One possibility to stick with Wilsons quotes/thoughts might be a book written by Wilson before he died. Some sort of guide through life. His wisdom in a 1000-page-volume... Tim Taylors new bible.
And then the invention of some completely new characters.

That's what I had in mind regarding Tim's 'advice', and fond remembrances of Wilson.
And I was talking about a reunion movie, of course -- not a new series.

It's not Tim and Al that own the hardware store. it's HARRY and Al.

In the end it was Tim and Al owning Harry's Hardware with Marty working in the store and Jeff showing eager interest in it / becoming a partner.
