What We Did:
Returned a chopped-up 1895 Queen Anne to its single-family roots.
Remodeling Cost: About $100,000
Time frame: 3 years
Where we saved: Using flooring, lights, and
a sink salvaged from a monastery for free, as well as buying other reclaimed materials through architectural salvage stores.
Where we splurged: The pro-grade stove
and other appliances in the kitchen.
