For the past thirteen months, a Wall Street Journal editor and her husband have been renovating a Harlem brownstone that they picked up for the "steal" price of $800,000. The renovation has finally come to enough of a close for the family to move in, which means it's time for a nifty Journal infographic showing the home's floorplan with before-and-after pictures of the updated rooms. Total renovation cost: $420,000, with some of the higher-than-expected tab a result of city inspectors' recommendations?and that's with the project not completely finished. In the gallery above, a look at a few of the transformations.
