When the leaves start to turn, you know you’re going to be spending a lot more time inside very soon. So why not start on some indoor home improvement projects? Fall and winter are the perfect times of the year to stay warm and busy. There are a number of different things you can do with lumber inside to create a more functional, beautiful home for you and your family. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Finish The Basement
When you want a large project, you can start by getting some lumber and framing in the basement. Framing isn’t a DIY project for everyone, but if you’re handy around the house, you can figure out how to get started on finishing your basement with the right lumber and some extra time inside. If you get done in time, you’ll have extra space to enjoy this winter.
Lumber can become just about anything you can imagine. If you’ve always wanted more shelving in the kitchen or a bookcase near the fireplace, fall is a great time to grab the lumber you need and create the image you have in your mind. You’ll need more books when winter arrives so you can stay warm by the fire.
If you like outdoor living in the spring and summer, use the space in your garage or basement in the fall to make chairs out of the lumber you buy. You can create bench-like seats or you can go with something more Adirondack-style. You can then spend more time on them by painting or finishing them in some way. When spring rolls around, you’ll have one more thing to look forward to!
Winter can be long and boring and in preparation for those colder months, collect the lumber you need to make some gifts for the holidays. Maybe you like building birdhouses or something else of that nature that you can easily give as presents. You could also build a dollhouse, frames, end tables, or anything else you can imagine.
