Although it’s been plenty warm lately, you can tell by the light and the earlier sunsets that fall is truly on its way. This is a great time to pay attention to a seasonal checklist, like Martha Stewart’s Top Tips to Prep Your Home for Fall.
This brief window before the rainy season sets in for good is also a fine time to do a more thorough review of your home. This Old House has a very detailed guide, How to Give Your House a Yearly DIY Inspection, that takes you through the process step-by-step (including a link to a printable checklist).
Once you get any necessary updates out of the way, you’ll feel confident that you’re prepared to enjoy the changing season!
