  • Not much, but we will cover the windows with plastic before winter and put up heavier curtains to keep the heat in.

  • I clean all the windows, inside and out and wash up the curtains. I do a major house scrubbing, both in spring and fall. We prune up the yard and clean the flower beds, switch out the summer/winter clothes and we also do a major toy sort/toss... giving away what we don't play with any more and tossing out anything broken.

  • Put the glass in place of the screens on the screen doors. Caulk if needed. That's about it.
