Further to a comment made by Jason in an earlier post, I thought it might be a bit of fun to begin a case study thread for those of us who are into renovating. I must admit, it's been a little while since I've siliconed or hammered anything (unless you count children's school projects and home repairs!) but think that we could all benefit from reading (and possibly even learning) from other's experiences. A breakdown of the project, including purchase price and renovating costs, as well as results (if applicable) in terms of increased valuation or rental income, would be great. Now who wants to start?
