Happy to Be Home: After

Who: Laurie H.
Where: Bainbridge, NY

I did some of the smaller projects myself as well as all of my own landscaping to save money. At times, coordinating the various contractors for each project was daunting. There also came that inevitable moment when I just wished they would all go away. Choosing paint colors was also a big deal. It's pretty scary when you have a picture in your mind and then you buy the barrels of paint hoping that your "picture" is as pretty as you imagined. The best part is now I feel pride in my home instead of embarrassment when I go up my walkway. I may never be "done," but it really feels like home now.

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