  • My husband and I built a deck and patio this spring off the back of our house. It was a lot of work - especially while trying to balance having some quality time with a 16 month old! Glad we got done early, because it's WAY too hot to do it now!! lol

  • We usually do a home improvement every few months since my husband is so handy. We just got done landscaping our front yard so now we're moving on to replacing the two support columns on the front porch with nicer ones and adding a porch railing. I'm not sure what we'll do after that.

  • Painting 6 (maybe 7) rooms, installing new flooring in the kitchen, repairing duct work, put up a swing, some landscaping, maybe doing a "Faux Wood" finish on our back porch floor... but it's a HUGE job, so I'm not sure.

    We're, after a year of living in our new home, finally trying to make it our own!

  • No. In fact we havent found the time to weed the front yard and it looks HORRIBLE.
