Who: Wayne K.
Where: Louisville, KY
Once I got started I enjoyed every minute of it. We changed some design items and made color changes, but nothing serious. My son designed the built-in shelving, which turned out absolutely gorgeous. We refaced the fireplace, and installed a new hardwood floor, built-in shelving, and new doors. The room appears larger and is obviously much brighter. I saved money by doing all the work myself except for drywall installation, which my son helped to do.
Who did the work: I did all of the work myself.
Cost: $1,000 to $5,000
