Best Master Suite Redo: Focus on Carpentry

The 800-square-foot space was long and narrow, with 15-foot ceilings, so we worked with a designer to create a floor plan that included a three-quarter bathroom and a walk-in closet in addition to the bedroom. We started by pulling up the wide-plank pine floorboards, so that they wouldn't be damaged during demolition, and saving the original square nails. We hired pros to rough-in the rooms, including running electrical and plumbing lines, and to spray in foam insulation, and I focused on the part I love: fine carpentry.
