Geek Turned Carpenter

This is my old house I bought. It was built in 1948 and had most of the original cabinets, lights, windows, and doors. Some before and after pictures. Not bad considering I had never done any of this before. I have put in a new bath and kitchen, refinished or replaced the walls, and installed all new energy star doors and windows. My electric bill went from $200+ in the summer to an average of $75 -- this is with the AC running 24/7. I have also replaced the plumbing and electrical and upgraded to 200amp service. Dug up the outside drain from the house to the street hookup and replaced with PVC.
