The last spark of the summer holidays is coming up this very weekend, everyone! It’s Labor Day long weekend!

Since the Fall season is upon all of us, I thought I’d gather another little retrospective of some ideas for easy projects you can work on to supplement your celebratory Labor Day long weekend with friends and family.

This is a collection of posts that we presented on this humble blog of ours in the recent past.  They can serve as easy Labor Day home improvement projects  which will help you say goodbye to the summer, and hello to a new season of transformation in your home.

Take a look!

1. Curb Appeal Upgrades

First impressions count. And even if you don’t plan to sell your home, curb appeal demonstrates the great relationship you’ve got with your property. For a great  Labor Day weekend home improvement project, why not spend a little time reconnecting with it, and beautifying your frontage for passers-by.

2. Driveway resurfacing

Your driveway is more than just a functional part of your home. It also has an aesthetic role to play. And just before summer fades to autumn this Labor Day weekend, why not see about giving your driveway a lift?

3. Washing windows and sliding doors

If the eyes are the windows to the soul, then the windows of your home are the eyes out into the world. Make sure you’re not looking through the grime of summer as Labor Day weekend progresses into autumn.

4. De-clutter your shed

The shed has been a hub of activity this summer. You de-cluttered it in the springtime to make sure you could get to all of the lawn-care, and gardening implements that you needed. Now, as summer is ending, it might be time to do a little de-cluttering again, or at least some re-shuffling.

5. Inspect your deck

Your deck has seen a lot of action this summer season too. It might be a good idea to inspect it for any signs of wear, and to think about sealing it for the coming cooler weather that will give way to the ravages of winter.

6. Inspect your siding

Similarly, your siding has been your shield against UV rays and heat all summer. Why not take a walk around your property and give your siding the once over? This post talked about ways to tackle any problems you might find, just in time for autumn to commence, particularly if you’ve got wood siding.

7. Think about your relationship with your home

This one may be the least labor intensive this Labor Day. But, often we get lost in the little projects and forget about the big picture. This post talked about just that. As the leaves on the trees are just about ready to think about falling, thinking about your home as more than bricks and mortar is a great way to end a busy summer.

Happy long weekend everyone!

Cheers,

Rob.
