Who: Barry D.
Where: Birmingham, AL
We love the old trees around us and the mountaintop views. We also love living in an old house that has a sense of place and history, with wavy glass windows and creaky floors. From descendants of the original owners, we've heard some great stories. Baseball legend Ted Williams once visited our home. This restoration was daunting because of years of neglect.
Who did the work: I did most of the work myself.
Cost: More than $100,000
