Who: Rebecca A.
Where: Summerfield, N.C.
We built a new basement, added a sunroom, and redid the kitchen and bathroom, along with updating the electrical and plumbing systems. We added new windows to the second floor. The only items that we contracted out were the exterior siding and the roofing. Since we took away part of our deck to make the sunroom, we also added a covered deck area with a hot tub.
Who did the work: I did most of the work myself.
Cost: $50,000 to $100,000
