Attic Suite

Episode DSEQ-408

When Abby and Jamey Moeller relocated to the Midwest from New York, their 1200 sq. ft. Tudor seemed huge in comparison to their New York City loft. Fast-forward a few months and the unfinished upstairs space is always on their minds. They've been dreaming of adding two dormers and turning the upstairs into a spacious master bedroom and bathroom. They know that building the dormers is out of their league, but they think they can hire out that work and do all the finishing themselves. After the sticker shock on the project that will be at least $65,000, they forge ahead figuring they can save as much as possible by doing as much as possible. A new upstairs will be sweet and definitely add equity, but do they have all the skills it takes to make this project work-and pay for itself?
