Country Living Home Almanac: Maintaining Your House Month by Month
For every season, there is a plan! Your home is your castle, comfort, and security -- so keep it in tip-top shape with this month-by-month, year-round compilation of ideas, suggestions, and how-to's! From safety guidelines to spring cleanings to decorative enhancements, from garden to attic, it contains an immense wealth of practical knowledge. For each month, a to-do list covers indoors; outside; deck, porch, and patio; garage and toolshed; and yard and landscape. January's the time to make a resolution and tackle house-care tasks you've been putting off, and to check for wintry ice dams and water leaks that can cause costly damage. During February, service your woodstove so you'll stay toasty warm, become an indoor gardener, check pumps, and identify areas that could use more lighting. As spring arrives, remember to check the roof and deck for damage, start growing kitchen herbs, replace storm windows, clean out fans, and more.
