Hi, I have recently saved some money and wanted to invest it to make something out of it instead of just letting it dry in my bank account.
I wanted to ask if anyone has been facing a similar situation and if you have started investing by yourself (stock picking, ETF, crypto) or just done it through your bank and let them do the work. If it’s the first option, also I would appreciate any advice.

If we did it, we'd be adding a bedroom, bathroom, and garage, and we would be increasing square footage by about 75%. House currently worth around $400k with $260k left on the mortgage; future comps are worth about $650k. Best guess is it is a $200k renovation.
