$9,622.94 is the final approximate cost. I originally estimated renovation of this condo to be about $10,000.00. It was accurate. It has been for necessary repairs, maintenance, and health. I saved 10% on both my Lowes, and my last large HD purchase, by using certificates that I received for moving! I have been enjoying using my first and new power driver. My time and energy performed the repairs, maintenance, and installations. A few unknown purchases have lost receipts and or forgotten costs.
