Favorite Room in the House: After
Who: Amy L.
Where: Grand Junction, Colo.
My husband completely gutted the old bathroom down to the studs. He tore out the wall surrounding it and expanded it by about three times, adding a new wall to create a walk-in-closet between the bathroom and our bedroom. He rewired all the electrical and rerouted all plumbing fixtures. We changed the tub to a shower pan surrounded by white subway tile and installed white 1-inch hexagonal tile on the floor. The only work not done by my husband and me was the smooth coat on the drywall.
Who did the work: I did most of the work myself.
Cost: $1,000 to $5,000
