Who: Sandra W.
Where: La Fargeville, N.Y.
We installed upgraded wall and ceiling insulation, designed floor panels, and installed a radiant-floor heat system. We hung Sheetrock, installed Australian Cypress engineered flooring, completed a two-tone paint job, added solid oak trim and baseboard and a detailed ceiling relief representing plaster from the Victorian era, and finished it off with crown molding. The closet is completely finished, including cedar shelving, wood molding, and lighting.
Who did the work: I did all the work myself.
Cost: $1,000 to $5,000
