  1. Loft conversion sounds interesting. I’d love to have a loft someday!

  2. This is great! I think we are going to finish our basement first. Everything else is in pretty good condition.

    We have redone everything but the upstairs bathroom. Our house is only 20 years old. Whoever gets it when we move will be lucky. My husband rocks!

    In 2013 we redid our original 1942 kitchen. This year I have my eyes set on revamping the bathroom, it doesn’t have a shower and with 2 young kids I desperately need one.

    Good tips and things to think about. I’ve been weighing the pros and cons of getting the instant hot water heating system versus keeping the traditional hot water tank trying to figure how much value it really adds to the house plus the cost savings on utility bills it provides versus the expensive price tag.
