Summer is officially here, which means the kids are home from school, the days are longer, and taking on a weekend project can now be the first item on your to-do list. However, picking a home improvement venture can be tricky if your house needs a lot of TLC. We’ve put together five summer DIY ideas to get you started.
Outdated windows can make your home susceptible to outdoor temperatures and in return, impact the electricity bill. To combat this issue, consider replacing old windows with energy-efficient ones to help regulate and control your home’s environment.
Chances are the past winter damaged your yard. Spend a weekend repotting and planting some of your favorite summer foliage, or change up your landscape by adding trees for some extra shade during the warmer days.

Outdoor Fun for the Kids
Keeping the kids entertained all summer long can be a challenge. Take advantage of the beautiful weather and bring the playroom outside with a DIY treehouse, or rework your backyard to host all kinds of game tournaments.

Sometimes all you need is a fresh coat of paint to breathe new life into a space. Whether you want to take on a piece of furniture, one room, or the whole house, summer months are the best time to start a painting project – and the kids can help too!
For the days when it’s just too hot to work outside, updating your home’s organization system is a great alternative. If you’re lacking storage in rooms like the laundry room or entryway, consider stackable storage options, or if your closet has seen better days, we have plenty of DIY wood or wire closet systems that you can install in a weekend.
