Who: John C.
Where: Orlando, FL
I love the new feeling of openness, how well it fits in with my 1930 home, how well-balanced it looks from all angles, and the play of the glass with the black and wood. The old floor was the worst in the house, and it is now prettiest. The high rain-shower head is blissful to experience. It's a joy. Other than minor floor tile in a small space, I had never done any of this sort of work before. I learned all manner or sawing woodworking, engineering and tiling on my own, from the Internet, and from This Old House. My favorite comment from a friend: "If I didn't know better, I'd think this was built by someone who knew what they were doing."
Who did the work: I did most of the work myself
Cost: $1,000 to $5,000
