Preserving a Historic Landmark: After
Who: Peter K
Where: Pikesville, MD
We had always wanted a shower, but then the historic district wouldn't let us move the window to fit it in. We ended up moving all the fixtures around instead. I took over a closet from an adjoining room and used the same white spiral floor tile in the frameless shower and on the floor, which made the whole room feel twice as big. I used the original floorboards to make the medicine cabinet and mirror frame. I love the rustic feel it gives the room. I did all the work myself, from gutting the place down to the floor joists to putting in a roof vent for the ceiling fan.
Who did the work: I did all of the work myself
Cost: $5,000 to $10,000
