    I have done several large home improvement projects in my short lifespan. My most recent one was converting my loft into a bedroom. The biggest one I ever took on was probably extending/converting a garage on my old house into a family/entertainment/game room.  This project took an entire summer and included the following items 1) Adding 3 new exterior walls (2x6 construction) with stucco exterior, 2) Adding a new roof to the extension including trusses and asphalt shingles (had to re-roof the entire house to get it to tie in correctly and match colors) 3) insulation and drywall, 4) Electrical work including ceiling fans, recessed lighting and in-wall CAT5 and Coaxial cables. 5) Duct work for new AC 6) Ceramic tile 7) Crown molding, trim, paint etc. I did all the work myself except for the concrete foundation, new AC installation, and stucco work.

    Well...I built our current home from the ground up, no assistance whatsoever (didn't want any). 

    It's hard to tell where the "build it" ends and the "improve it" begins, though.

    I guess my biggest home improvement project was repainting the walls at my home. It's not a great achievement but I was really proud of myself when I was finished smile

    I put in new bathroom floors that required removing the toilets, leveling the subfloors, installing new tiles, then reinstalling the toilets.  I completed it and was very happy.  Certainly not something I envisioned myself ever doing.  I have found you just have to follow instructions carefully and use the Internet for advice and tips.

    I built an arbor gate and a fence off the side of our deck.  Yes, I did complete it.
