Texas Native Reborn: After

Who: Tamara G.
Where: Austin, TX

Acting as my own contractor, I hired individual tradesmen and helped by doing a good bit of work myself. I replaced the roof, re-leveled the pier and beam foundation, stripped it down to the studs, and added all new plumbing, wiring, insulation, and HVAC. I kept the original floors and trim and refinished them. Every cabinet and fixture was replaced with the exception of the footed cast-iron tub.

Who did the work: I did some of the work myself but a contractor did most of it.
Cost: $50,000 to $100,000
