list of rooms in your house to evaluate for home improvements

If January is all about personal improvements, I would guess March and April offer motivation for home improvements.  There is something cleansing about the temperature rising and the world turning green.  It is time to open the windows and let the ghost of Christmas clutter out.  It is time to step back and take a look at maintaining and improving one of your largest investments:  your home.

    This is a great reminder for people contemplating home repairs this season. It’s always simple to think of a project as just needing a few things changed; however, projects are always more complicated than you think they are going to be. This is a great way to think of all aspects of areas you might need to change when approaching a home improvement project.

    I am preparing to move house at the end of the month. This list has reminded me of all the areas I still have to de-clutter and sort out, and some I hadn’t considered yet. You are becoming a kind of “Jimmeny Cricket”, thank you. By the way, I liked the video-post, it helped me visualise the end result. Definitely more please.
