Who: Mike D.
Where: Ames, IA
The house sits on 2 acres of wooded land with a small creek, so it's a perfect location for our growing children. We added 1,000 square feet to the existing 2,000 square feet of the 1958 multi-level home. We acted as our own general contractor, and we performed a lot of the work ourselves. We also enlisted the help of my parents and two of my brothers.
