This 1904 Queen Anne in Prattville, Alabama, had been in Andrew Sanders's family for about 30 years, and by the time he moved in, it was showing its age. Luckily, the house needed minimal structural work, so he focused on the cosmetic, including updating the paint and landscaping.
Money-Saver: "Can't afford fancy landscaping? A few container plants placed by the front door or hung from your porch's ceiling will give your home a friendly, finished look."
