Who: Andrew S.
Where: Prattville, Ala.
We built new lattice skirting for the base, added a new central heating and cooling system, added new solid oak floors, new plumbing, a new bathroom, and a new kitchen. We restored and painted all the original doors and restored their hardware. The whole exterior got a touch-up and new paint, and we fixed the original double-hung windows. We also did plenty of efficiency improvements, including a new water heater, temperature-controlled attic exhaust fans, large ceiling fans, and closed-cell foam insulation under the floor system.
Who did the work: I did most of the work myself.
Cost: $50,000 to $100,000
