Anyone have plans to do a little home improvement this spring? We have a couple projects we’re looking to accomplish before those April showers set it, but nothing too elaborate. First, we’d like to install rain gutters on our house as planting near our home is nearly impossible thanks to heavy rain runoff. I’m also looking into ways to collect the rain water in some sort of rain barrel (more to come on that project) to irrigate our expanding square foot garden.
Once we get the gutters installed we would like to pour a patio or build a deck on the back of our house. Our home has a very small back porch area that is barely big enough to house my grill and the kids’ outdoor toys. We’re leaning towards pouring a larger patio off the porch to put some outdoor furniture, and to have a place to enjoy backyard campfires in the chiminea.
For now, we are focusing on saving up the cash to pay for our home improvement projects. So what are you up to this spring?
