Being a homeowner in America is a truly wonderful thing. To some, a home is an oasis of comfort, to others it is a foundation for their family, and for some it is a valuable asset that will help to secure their future. In any of these cases (and others), a home is something that must be protected and improved upon so that it will weather the years well and not lose its value. And any homeowner who has been in their house for any length of time knows this means projects.
Projects are a good thing. Home improvement or home repair projects are a part of the “joys” of home ownership. The professionals in the home improvement industry (those folks you often see on the home and garden shows on cable TV) are always recommending at least one inside home improvement project during the cold weather months, and one outside project during the warmer months. This is good advice, considering that most folks don’t enjoy working outside on the house while the temperatures are down around the “freezing” mark. In addition, the warmer months in spring and summer (and early autumn) here in the Greater Kansas City Area are great times of the year to spend a little time outdoors working around the outside of the house. Fresh air and sunshine does a person good, don’t you know!
A good wintertime inside home improvement project might be painting the walls or remodeling a bathroom. When the weather warms, you may want to tackle an outside project like painting the house, building a planter box in the back garden, or building a deck. Each of these types of projects allows the homeowner to make a small improvement to their property and help to grow the value of their home. At the same time, a couple of home improvement projects a year helps the homeowner connect with the home in a unique way and grow their “handyman” skills. And if your home improvements begin to make the neighbors a bit jealous – all the better! Soon, everyone on the block will be working inside and outside of their homes and helping to beautify the neighborhood as a whole. Also a good thing.
Something to keep in mind: Even though many home improvement projects are fairly simple in nature, not everyone is comfortable about building an outside deck, replacing a door or a set of windows. Fortunately, you don’t need to be a home improvement guru to pick up the phone and call in a little professional help.
