Forgive me for boring you with this one, but I can't resist sharing good old fashioned bit of DIY (especially when it comes to houses). This lucrative man fixed and replaced a 22' section of his run-down basement wall into a brand new bedroom - for under $3000. In Sterling that's just short of £2,000. Not only is he saving a great deal of money with this renovation, he's also feeding the primal urge to fix things with bare hands - something I recommend we all do once in a while.
