Replace your standard porch light with a motion sensor porch light, as this will reduce electricity costs. There are options as far as sensitivity and turning on the light manually if those options are important to you.

When you are going to be doing home improvement projects, you should do the ones that you can see first. Your potential buyers have no choice but to judge your house by what they see, and having things such as peeling paint and overgrown hedges may cause you to lose the sale. It is very true that a lot of home improvments cannot be seen but you need to take care of the ones that can be seen first.

You can store your supplies between floor joists or ceiling rafters. Molding and pieces of wood can be conveniently hidden out of eyesight. Just nail a few furring strip across those too exposed floor rafters or joists and slip your material inside to store it.

Don’t get too carried away demolishing everything in your path when you begin a project. Always check structural integrity behind walls, cabinets and other places well before you tear them down. It can be really expensive if you damage electrical or plumbing systems by mistake.

Always know where the gas shutoff valve is when you start any gas-based DIY project. You also need to be extra careful with these types of projects. You could start a fire and hurt yourself if you are not cautious.
