Who: James M.
Where: Jamesport, NY
When I first started this project, I wasn't sure if it was going to be worth the effort. The hardest part was lifting 250,000 pounds of stone by hand and setting it in place. I gained more space than I had anticipated and when I see my kids out there playing, I thank God that I did all that work. I love the fact that my kids have a place to play and enjoy themselves.
Who did the work: I did most of the work myself
Cost: $25,000 to $50,000
