Who: Maria K.
Where: Mantua, OH
We finished the interior with an engineered-wood floor and installed built-in cabinets and shelves with rope lighting as well as a deep closet with lots of storage. We saved serious money by reusing materials where possible and by purchasing siding, interior trim, doors, and hardware at auction. We painted the inside of the built-in shelf bookcase blue to make it pop against the peach walls.
Who did the work: I did all the work myself
Cost: $10,000 to $25,000
