Small bathroom makeover
For a good example of a small bathroom makeover be sure to see my own
This plan has a large shower base with two shower stations. This is becoming very popular even though it costs more to build bigger showers. Surprisingly, this shower is very reasonable to build as far as materials, but the trade-off is that it takes a lot of work to build the concrete shower pan. The size of the shower makes it difficult to buy a pre-made shower pan.
This bathroom plan works well for long rooms that are quite narrow. I like the green glass block surrounding the shower and the jade-colored tile on the side of the bath. Glass block is also making a comeback because it is less expensive than it used to be. It also offers privacy without shutting out the light.
The bath is the center of focus in this room. The shower is hidden. This design takes advantage of a corner space in a smaller room. If a home has wood window sills and wood door frames, a perfect choice of interior color is dark green. It adds to the wooded area look and feel of the home.
This is a contemporary style bathroom for rooms with very limited space. The color choice is wild, but the design is very simple and affordable.

I just wanted to say that I love your website. My husband and I followed your instructions on building our own home. Most of the work we did ourselves, but not all. We saved $90,000 in labor costs and now have a beautiful home that we own.

I built my own home doing all my own labor. My house costs me around $70,000 for materials. It took me 8 months to build and is about 2,000 square feet. I didn't think I could do it, but your house web site encouraged me. I used all the info you had.
Benny Luis Lopez,
I can't thank you enough for your free information web site about home building. I was looking for Electrical wiring diagrams when I found your site. It was very helpful.

My wife and I lost our home to foreclosure but we kept a plot of land to start over. We are halfway through the construction of our house. Your website gave us hope to start over and build a house with low payments. We are in our late 60's but we find it rewarding to put so much effort into a project that will reward us for years to come.
