Restored Charm and Vitality: After

Who: Ken M.
Where: Glen Ridge, NJ

We turned a sad, abandoned, and foreclosed house into a sunny new home for a happy family! This house was a complete rehab. We did all the landscaping and design and hired an architect for the interior plans and town permits. We expanded upon existing perennials to create a country garden effect. The new mahogany door, portico, and lamps bring perspective and beauty. The window shutters bring balance, and the new doors and paint job bring function and beauty.

Who did the work: I did some of the work myself, but a contractor did most of it.
Cost: More than $100,000
