Who: Dee Dee K.
Where: Hennessey, OK
Being in the country and having a relaxing, comfortable place to sit back and enjoy can't be beat. The stacked-stone fireplace has a mesquite mantle that my husband crafted from the farm where he grew up, and we salvaged parts from the barn door on this farm to make the master-bedroom door. We removed the porch from the house and, after expanding out 8 feet, reattached the old porch cover. Wood floors were weaved into the great room extension to create a seamless flow. We hope to enjoy the house and create great memories with our friends and grandkids for many years.
Who did the work: I did some of the work myself, but a contractor did most of it.
Cost: More than $100,000
