Projects You Can Get Done Over a Long Weekend

Here in the Pacific Northwest, we can take advantage of the outdoors for most of the year. The long weekend is a great time to get your backyard ready so you can enjoy it, even during the rainy and colder months.

Here are some ideas to extend your outdoor space for the colder months:

  • Paint – Fall is a great time to refresh the look of your house and/or fence with a new color or fresh paint. Plus, paint helps protect your home from the elements.
  • Create a covered area – Having a covered area can make all the difference in having an outdoor space you can use year-round. Using wood, you can build a shelter over patio seating to ensure cozy gatherings regardless of the weather.
  • Winterize garden beds and landscaping – Pull weeds and mulch to help protect your garden from the cold weather, and install garden lights to keep the yard visible and welcoming during the winter months.
  • Window replacement – Update windows to increase energy efficiency and reduce electric costs. The windows in your home not only add natural light and architectural style, but they also play a substantial role in the energy-efficient performance of your home. Our window specialists work closely with architects, contractors, and homeowners to offer advice on the best products and styles to fit your needs.
