Restoring Original Woodwork: After

Who: Craig H.
Where: Salt Lake City, UT

I stripped, saved, and reused all of the woodwork; made custom screens/storm windows; installed and finished a white oak floor; installed a gas fireplace; and built custom cabinets. All remodeling was done in the evenings and on Saturdays. Every part of the project required a much-expanded timetable—very frustrating. It took over a year to complete this room. But I guess that is just another way of paying for it!

Who did the work: I did all the work myself. Cost: $1000-$5000
