We restored this Craftsman with a more pleasing color palette and new landscaping, and did most of the work ourselves. Designing and building the large gourmet kitchen (from scratch!) was by far the most rewarding experience during the remodel process. We made the cabinets and the concrete countertops, and even installed the radiant flooring ourselves. The appliances were floor models or slightly used. The Internet has been the best resource overall for bargains.
Who did the work: I did most of the work myself.
Cost: More than $100,000
