Who: Paul K.
Where: Towson, Maryland
Our two daughters, 4 and 2 at the time, helped pick out the colors for their rooms—pink, of course—and helped paint their rooms! The house renovation was a family affair, with my father-in-law and mother-in-law helping with rewiring and demolition and my mother painting doors and constantly cleaning, and my wife was the general contractor! The project took a year and a half longer than planned and cost twice as much as planned, but now we have a wonderful home for our family of five—or at least we will when I finish renovating the sun porch and the basement...does it ever end?!
Who did the work: I did most of the work myself
