Who: Adam M.
Where: Stoughton, WI
We took a dead space in our old house and made it useful and beautiful. It's a brand new space but I think it fits our house. It's not "cookie cutter" and very little is off-the-shelf; a lot of it is secondhand/salvaged. Spray insulation means the space is always comfortable. We now have five new windows and a skylight for lots of light. The central stairs divide the space into four distinct spaces: a sitting area/future bedroom, a desk, a TV/stereo, and a ¾ bath.
Who did the work: I did most of the work myself.
Cost: $25,000 to $50,000
