Springtime Checklist

Spring has sprung (hopefully) in the Miami Valley and that means it’s time to open the windows, open the doors, flush out old man winter, and start preparing for much deserved spring and summer. For this blog post, we wanted to get everyone focused on projects that they have been putting off and dream projects they want to accomplish this year. Maybe you want to install a new deck. Maybe you want to paint your house. Maybe you want to help the curb appeal of your home. Whatever your project or projects may be, going in with a plan is your best recipe for success.

Assessing your home

The first thing you want to do is assess your home. Look for tasks and projects that NEED to be taken care of first. How are the shingles on your roof doing? How about the siding on your home? Do your trees need trimmed? Perform a detailed walk-through of the inside and outside of your home to get in your mind what needs to be done and what you would like to do.

Creating a list

The second thing you should do is create a list. Think of it like a personal “honey-do” list with all of the things you need to accomplish as well as all of thing things you would like to get done. Make sure you prioritize the things that need to be finished sooner rather than later, but also make sure you check off some of the smaller, easier projects. Seeing your list starting to shrink will keep you motivated to keep going.

Get Started

The last thing you need to do is roll your sleeves up and get to it. The sooner you get your list done, the sooner you’ll be able to sit back with a glass of lemonade and enjoy all the hard work you put it. If you find yourself overwhelmed with some of your bigger projects like remodeling your bathroom, or building a deck, make sure you give us a call.
