Who: Carolyn D.
Where: Galena, Ill.
A year later, after lots of work with saws, hammers, tile, paint, and a little luck, our project is done. Other than heating and plumbing, we did all the work ourselves, even down to cutting holes in the plaster walls to make room for the new and covering up the old. Our new master bath has all the bells and whistles, from a multi-jet shower to in-floor heating, all while maintaining the integrity of the house with the black and white subway tile.
Who did the work: I did most of the work myself.
Cost: $5,000 to $10,000
