Making Memories in the City: After

Who: Abigail G.
Where: New York City

We did a full demo on the entire apartment: exposed the brick walls throughout, ripped up all the flooring and laid new subfloor and bamboo hardwoods. We installed faux tin ceilings with recessed lighting and fans. Barn doors to the bedroom double as closet doors. Bench seating along the window provides extra storage. I had told my boyfriend I would not move in unless we remodeled. After all the work was done he proposed, and we just got married!

Who did the work: We did all the work ourselves.
Cost: $25,000-$50,000 (whole house)
