Buying something else is not an option.

So what are the projects you would do with  a 100,000 dollar budget?

Me I would add on a large garage and workshop for my DH - thats about 30 grand

I would add on to the back of the house and raise the roof. , reconfigure the bedroom and add a master bath and ground floor powder room - or as much as I could with the remaining 70 grand

I'd turn my garage into a bedroom and an office. Then turn my barn into a better garage. I'd still have money left over...so I don't know

Nothing you would want to add if you had more money? Pool? Deck? Landscaping?

I don't own. I rent. Real estate is astronomical here.

BUT. If I owned the house I live in, I would upgrade my kitchen and bathrooms. They are original from the freakin 70's.

Nope. Already has all that and more. We just moved in 2 months ago, it was built from the ground up.

The basement would eat up most of that budget - why would you want a basement so badly?

New flooring throughout the house. I want the tile that looks like hardwood. Completely new kitchen. We have a large kitchen without enough cabinets. I would also update the bathrooms.

Raise the roof above the garage to add two bedrooms. It's about $40,000. We have the plan already. Then remodel the kitchen and master bath.
