Streamlining the Hodgepodge Look: After

Who: Jackie N.
Where: Hastings, MN

The entire reconstruction project went well—we had great contractors and everything moved along smoothly. There really wasn't any hard part about the remodeling other than being patient and understanding the work takes time. Also, when it's time to make decisions about siding, brick, colors, where to put windows, doors, etc., it is important to be thoughtful about the process but still not hold the project up. Thinking ahead to the next stage and making decisions in a timely manner helped keep everything and everyone on task. Now that the work is done, it's fun to sit on the front porch and watch the world go by, and on Saturday nights in the summer we have a front row seat as hundreds of old classic cars drive by on their way to downtown for the Saturday Night Classic Cruise-In.

Who did the work: We did some of the work ourselves but a contractor did most of it.
Cost: $25,000–$50,000
