Default **** Post your house mods here ****!!!!

I am not skilled in any ways but I recently put up chair rails and wall paper in my hallways of my new house. I need so ideas and figured other might want to post what they have done with pics. I will add pics to this thread soon.

Well, I had to reroute the wiring for the range this weekend. The Missus wanted the range on the other side of the kitchen than where the 240V outlet was. Fun project...

1. Changed the first floor to 9'
2. Added a linen closet to the master bath
3. Switched master closet with laundry room so closet is accessible from bedroom instead of masterbath
4. Moved bathroom rough-in in basement to allow larger finished room on basement wall with egress window
5. Added 1' to each side of the rear steps so my clumsy *** won't step off the side

We have a large garden tub in the master bathroom and I would love to take that out and put in a jacuzzi tub instead but I dont have the electric lines.

I wish I did. I was gonna try exposed wires with a cover going down the wall but thought it would not look good in the end.
