You could save that cute striped floor with the footprints!

Good luck!! Sounds like a big job. Thankfully our house was remodeled before we moved in - all but one really really old bathroom. I found a giant slug crawling on the wall of that bathroom. It's my son's room but every time I go in there, I want to remodel! It is hard to find a sweet spot between being green and being affordable. Look forward to seeing how your remodel goes.

I remodeled our 1/2 bathroom. I installed the new sink, water saving faucet, and vanity BY MYSELF. It was my first plumbing project.


@CondoBlues Way to go Lisa! You are such a DIY rock star!
@GreenBean I know what you mean about finding the balance between being green and being affordable. We can't afford to do everything we want by far!
@Julie Unfortunatly those cute footprint floorboards are in too rough of shape to be worth saving...although I'm secretly hoping someone will salvage them out of our dumpster!

Looks like a big project Micaela-how exciting! I love the picture of your husband and boys poking out of the roof. We are about to do some remodeling-but certainly not to the same extent as your project. Can't wait to see the final product...and hopefully some updates along the way.


Thanks Lori! Yes - it is an exciting project but a bit nerve wracking as well. :) Looking forward to completion!

Sierra Nordgren

That sounds like a handful, so good luck to you! But the boys sure look like they're having a blast. I even think your man is just having fun tearing the walls down! It's been a month since you posted this, how's it coming along?

That house must have lots of stories to tell because of how long it survived. Anyway I praise your husband for being DIY man of the month. :-) His roofing ideas are innovative. He was able to craft a successful building plan using a tight budget.

Cool. Love the when it's remodeling time.

Good luck to ya! It seems like a very big job, considering the size and age of your home. It's pretty hectic, but it's satisfying once you get some work done.


We put our 3rd floor remodel on hold, but hope to get to it again. Your house is an inspiration! Can you add links for any companies you recommend, especially for putting in the dormer which is one thing we want to do. Or, maybe you did all the work yourselves? Thanks!


Hi Rita - We are using David Kolcinski for our new dormer and bathroom. He is great to work with! http://www.kolcinski.com/index.html

Good luck with your remodel - whenever you get to it!

Thank you for sharing your remodeling experience. It's great that you are trying to implement Eco-friendly features into your home. More people should do that. Remodeling your home is a very daunting task can be extremely rewarding at the same time. Good luck!

Your house is over a hundred years old? Wow, that’s just awesome! And yeah, it seems like it’s just the right time to do those repair and remodeling projects. How’s everything coming along now? I assume you’ve done quite a lot by now, considering almost two years have passed. Any tips on green home building that you can share? I’m planning to do some DIY renovations on our home in the near future, and I would appreciate suggestions from those who’ve already had experience in eco-friendly home building.
