(BPT) - During the milder months - like summer and fall - homeowners naturally tend to prioritize working on the exterior of their houses, because the weather is nice. But in the winter, we're more apt to tackle smaller home improvement projects inside. This seems like a no brainer, right? Chip Gaines, host of HGTV's Fixer Upper offers a few easy home improvement projects to help you make the most of your winter indoors.
Winter in New England is a hit or miss event. Some years we buried in snow, while others bring warm weather a just the occasional speckle of snow. This year, forecasters are predicting that La Nina, the cold winter sister to El Nino, is going to splatter us with a thumping of snow storms. Even though we know the weather can be a tricky thing to predict, it is always better to be safe than sorry.
One of the easiest and cost effective ways to get ready for winter is with a new storage shed. Here at Salt Spray, we build year round and although our business is weather dependent, we don’t stop building just because we enter a new season. A new storage shed is the best place to create easy access to your snow blow, shovels, pet friendly snow melt, and even the fun stuff, like sleds and skates.
We have a variety of shed options and designs to meet every budget. We work together with every client to ensure that a new building works not only in the winter, but through every season. For example, for the winter you may need storage but in the summer, you may want to turn your new building into a bunk house for visitors or grandkids. Whatever the idea, the reason, or the concept, the design team at Salt Spray can help make it a reality.

The typical yard goes through a lot in a given year: natural wear and tear, rainstorms, dry spells, blankets of leaves, weeds and so on. Properly managing the inevitability before the season changes requires simple planning and a little elbow grease.
The following tips will help even the novice homeowner stay on top of things:
(BPT) - Remember when you actually had to leave the house to do things?
Today, you could use your smartphone to do all your holiday shopping, request a quote for a new shed, order groceries and have them delivered, and then watch all the Oscar nominated films without ever getting off the couch.
It's pretty amazing, but for all the convenience we enjoy with our digital lifestyle, sometimes you need a hands-on, personalized approach. And no one knows this better than those who have taken up the DIY lifestyle, or the millions of Americans who obsess over their lawn.
