Project: Room-to-room remodeling
Call it home improvement mania.
Americans are obsessed with remodeling, expanding and generally improving their homes.
They spent an estimated $210 billion doing just that in 2005, according to the Remodelors Council of the National Association of Home Builders, which projects spending this year to increase to some $238 billion.
Why? Despite much talk about a real estate "bubble," most homes are expected to continue to appreciate at a healthy rate -- giving homeowners yet more equity to tap for renovations. Plus, if real estate markets start to cool as anticipated, more people may choose to fix up what they have and stay put instead of moving.
With that mania in mind, we assembled this room-by-room interactive guide to the more common home improvements and remodeling ideas you may be considering for your home this year.
