Im having a contractor here in Tennessee do some major improvements to my home. First is an addition on the back of the house 22X16 feet. All new vinyl windows DH (new construction, not replacement). Vinyl siding, new steel exterior doors, new storm doors and a new patio door. Inside Im having the bath redone, ceramic tile floor, repair or replace tub, new toilet and new vanity and sink. The house only has one bath. In the kitchen, Nafco floor tiles and new countertops. Through out the rest of the house it will be painted some drywall work and new carpeting. Im also having the electrical service upgraded from 100 amp to 200 amp and will have breakers replace fuses. Im also having the electrical service run underground. I just came across this forum. I wish that I had found it sooner as the contractor will start on the 18th or 19th of April.
BTW the house was built in the early 50s by my parents and I now own the home that I grew up in!
