Floor Plans: 1st Floor

I'm really proud of all the work I've put into this house. There are still closet doors left to install, and maybe one day I'll get to putting pillars by the front walkway, but for now we're happy with our home. I don't think we'll be looking for a new remodeling challenge anytime soon. Here's the breakdown of what we learned the hard way, so you won't have to.

What we did: Remodeled a derelict 1921 American Foursquare

Remodeling cost: $100,000, plus the $156,900 cost of the home

Time frame: Four years

Where we saved: Using butcher block for the kitchen counters instead of having engineered stone installed

Where we splurged: Replaced the foyer's hardwood floors with marble and granite tile
