Tackling home projects is one of the most satisfying things that can be done right now. All of those little things that we always wanted to put off because of lack of time, well here we go. If you are a homeowner right now is a good time to evaluate what can or could be done. If you are a person who is in a rental situation it is a good time to organize and go through belongings. Organizing now can help when you are able to buy a home. During these times of uncertainty, I want to focus on what can be certain, tackling home projects.
Tackling Home Projects
Recently a friend’s wife really wanted him to repaint their deck. Is this a valid request? It is but here are the steps and thought processes to go with it. Time would usually qualify as the number one aspect. Yes, to tackle this home project they have the time. Checkbox one is clicked off. The next consideration is the quantity of paint needed. This will help determine the cost. He calculated the square footage of the deck, added in for the railings and stairs and determined he would need X amount of paint. Once a probable number is determined it’s time to price out. It was decided that even though the timing was good the price of the project was not.
Other Home Renovations
Since my friend and his wife were concentrating on some outdoor home projects that could be tackled they turned to the furniture. They had a set of chairs that had old coverings on them. This project was a great solution to help spruce up the outdoor space but to stay within budget. To go along with the chair covering they also cleaned up and washed the outdoor space as best as they could.
The satisfaction of Home Projects
Not everyone has the means of doing bigger projects right now. Just do what you can and try and stay positive. Also, let your partner or spouse do what they need too. If your husband needs to mow the lawn, again, even though it’s too soon, let him. Also, shovel snow in certain parts of Colorado right now. If you want to wash the windows, again, do it. It is also perfectly alright to not do projects. Just try and stay healthy and positive right now and we will all get to the other side of this
