cheap home improvements: Cheap Home Improvements - 09/20/09 07:37 AM

One of the many houses that we have lived in and remodeled over the years needed more cabinet space. We decided to move the refrigerator and added additional lower cabinets. We were able to match the cabinet doors on the bottom cabinets by using the doors from the laundry room that just happened to match and were the right size. Since we moved the refrigerator the upper cabinets were too short. We went to Lowe's and looked at the cabinet displays and there was the answer. We bought a piece of shelving board and some dowels, went home and made … (2 comments)

cheap home improvements: Just A Little Cauling and a Little Time Can Save Your Money - 05/15/09 05:07 PM
Now is a great time to check all of your windows to make sure that the caulking is in good shape. It is amazing how much cool air you can lose around your windows. A lot of people are not aware that caulking is not a permanent product. It should be checked at least every two years. It will break down due to the weather. Also check the flashing around your chimney. Another good thing to check is the weather stripping around your doors. Air Conditioning is too expensive to let it slip out the door or window. … (0 comments)

cheap home improvements: Spring is a Good Time for Home Maintence - 04/13/09 03:11 PM
With the weather getting warmer, now is a good time to start checking you home for deferred maintenance issues. If it is warm enough in your area then it is time to make sure that your foundation vents are open. By opening your vents you will ensure good airflow in your crawl space. You should also check the caulking around your windows. Caulking is not a permanent product and will break down over time. If your caulking is cracked then it needs to be removed and re-caulked. If you are not handy with home reapirs then you need to call a … (0 comments)

cheap home improvements: The Price of a Few Rocks - 04/13/09 12:50 PM
In an earlier blog, we discussed building a simple firepit from creekrocks. 
I failed to mention the fact that it cost us nothing to build, since we did not have to buy any materials. Infact, not only did it not cost us nothing - but it helped to clear the yard of some of the big rocks that were in our way of mowing the yard.  This just goes to show you don't have to spend alot of money to have a great idea or build something of value and enjoyment. … (0 comments)
