I vote you should make some improvements. Psychologically, this allows you to brand the home as your own. It also gives you something to talk about with the neighbors with whom you have nothing in common. Of course, all the husbands get pissed when they get home and their wives start nagging to make the same improvements.

Oh my god, that is insane. My contractor would charge 2 days labor and materials. I'd estimate not more than $2,000.
