Who: Robert I.
Where: Baldwin, NY
Our home now has charming curb appeal. We opened up the porch and added a master bedroom addition for more space. Features such as tapered columns atop fiber-cement pilasters, wall flares, and crown molding give our home character. All we were able to comfortably afford was to have the contractor build the exterior shell. Therefore, everything else was up to me and my team of friends and family.
Who did the work: I did some of the work myself, but a contractor did most of it.
Cost: More than $100,000
