As we’ve recently moved, we still have a lot of projects that need working on. There are some that have been on hold for months and others that we haven’t even thought about yet. Here is a list of the main ones we currently have on the go.
Unblocking Drains and Gutters
I mean, let’s be honest, these are the kinds of maintenance jobs you should be doing anyway. The drains and gutters need a lot of care and attention. It’s difficult to keep an eye on them all the time, but we try to as often as we can. When the weather is bad, it’s essential to check them regularly. The last thing anyone wants is for their drains and gutters to get blocked. This can lead to all sorts of problems such as flooding and burst pipes. We make sure one of us checks them out each week and gets rid of all the leaves and debris.
Clean the BBQ
Okay, so the summer might be on the way out, but there’s still plenty of barbecuing opportunities. We like to have cook outs quite a bit, and as such the barbecue needs cleaning a lot. But we have one of those huge grill types. So it requires quite a bit of work to sort out and get clean. At the moment, we are in the process of revamping it. We’re going to do a deep clean of every part of the BBQ. Then we’re thinking about repainting it too. The idea is to end up with something that looks almost as good as new in time for the next barbecue we host.
Build Garden Bench
We love our garden, and we enjoy spending time there when the weather is nice. It’s always good to have some extra seating space. So we’re in the process of building a garden bench at the moment. We’re using a combination of industrial adhesives and regular tools to get the best possible construction. We’re having a mini dispute about the colour at the moment, but I’m sure that will work itself out!
Rearrange the Bedroom
Not all of our projects are taking place outside though! We’re also in the process of rearranging the bedroom. This is something we’ve wanted to do ever since moving, but we’ve only just got around to it now. The aim is to try to generate a little bit more space so the room can be even more relaxing and functional. This is a weekend job, and we should be able to get it all done in one sitting.
Store Stuff in the Loft
Because we’ve recently moved, we still have quite a bit of stuff to unpack. I know that we’re not going to have room for everything in the house. So this means we’ll need to store some stuff up in the loft. And this is a project all of its own. We’re going to need to go through everything we still haven’t unpacked and decide what can go up in the loft. This will no doubt be the cause of some bickering! But I’m sure we will come to an arrangement that benefits everybody!
It seems like the list of jobs is never ending when you’re a homeowner. This is just a few of the priority projects we have on the go right now. And it seems whenever we get one thing done something else crops up. For now, we’re going to focus on these elements to try to get the property a little more organised. Wish us luck!
