Floor Plans

What They Did: Renovated a deteriorating 1908 Victorian-Craftsman hybrid.

Remodeling cost: $36,500

Time frame: Six years and counting.

Where we saved: Taking advantage of Internet deals and sales to buy appliances and other items.

Where we splurged: Period-style light fixtures and push-button switches for the house.

What we'd do differently: Run HVAC ducting for air-conditioning while the walls were open.

Biggest challenge: Finding historically appropriate radiators to heat the pantry/laundry room and sun porch.

How we solved it: Scouring salvage yards across the state.
