Who: Liz L.
Where: Fairfield, Conn.
We have a larger, more energy-efficient home with a bright, sunny, open floor plan on the first floor, and two spacious bedrooms and a full bath upstairs. We went from small and dark to bright and airy. The floors are my favorite. My husband custom-trimmed each window and door. We moved the old front door to the back door and reused an antique door for the bathroom. After two years, we designed a new front porch and had a local carpenter work on it with us. We love sitting on the porch waving to our neighbors!
Who did the work: I did some of the work myself, but a contractor did most of it.
