First-Time Project Manager: After

Who: Vesta C
Where: Newark, N.J.

Carpet was removed and revealed beautiful hardwood floors. We kept the original window, ceiling, and crown moldings along with the french doors, a claw foot tub, old bathroom sink basin, the original doors, and crystal door knobs. New windows were installed, new roof and siding, and the garage was rebuilt. This was my first experience as a project manager. I also learned a lot about historic homes and had to defend my plans to the Historic Preservation Board. Overall, I am extremely pleased with the results and it was all worth it!

Who did the work: A contractor did all the work
Cost: More than $100,000
