July is more then half way over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still turn your home into a fun summer house. You still have a couple of months, at least, to enjoy any DIY projects, upgrades or changes that you make in the name of summer. When you think about summer and how you can prepare your home for the season what do you think about? Taking time to relax is a big part of summer, so why not create a reading nook somewhere in your home or find a place to hang a hammock that you can take an afternoon nap on. Game time with your family and friends is also a great summer activity that you can make space for in your home. Put together a room inside your home with plenty of seating and fill it with board games or plan a space out in your yard that is big enough to place corn hole boards or washer toss boxes. If you really want to commit to summer fun, install horseshoe pits. Unfortunately your whole summer can’t be all about fun and games. Consider doing those chores that only happen a couple of times a year. For example cleaning out your washer and dryer. You could also pick one home improvement project that you want to tackle before the season it up. Below you can find a comprehensive checklist of ideas that you may want to make happen before summer passes us by.
With Independence Day kicking off the month here in the States, kids in the throes of school break and the days (and evenings) luxuriously long, July is a month to celebrate summer in all its glory. In pleasant weather, an outdoor shower (as long as it’s private) can be used for everyday bathing, making the upheaval that goes along with a bathroom remodeling project a bit more bearable.
