Lockdown Series

Being part of the “in” crowd has a new meaning these days. Many are working at home, or are laid off due to the health concerns we are facing. Being part of this group can be isolating and stressful, we’re all unsure how long this is going to go on, and what will be waiting for us on the other end. To help take your mind off of current events, we’ll discuss some things in the coming weeks that might be a bit more fun.

Since you’ve been on lockdown, maybe you’ve noticed some things about your home you don’t love, or they have been magnified due to the amount of time you’re there. It’s not too early to call us about what you want to change. Meetings can be held virtually, and you can focus on the project without as many distractions. Looking forward to something is always more enjoyable than dwelling on something you have no control over.

Do some research. You might have some extra time on your hands right now, so why not do some research into home improvement projects. Find out what styles appeal to you; which projects give you the most bang for your buck. Are you thinking about selling your home in the near future? Which projects will help with resale, and which will be most cost-effective?

Plan for the future. Hiring a designer now gets you that much farther ahead when the time comes to start construction. Keep track of images that catch your eye to compile into a kind of idea book so you can get a better idea of your design style. This will help you narrow down design choices later, and there are a lot of them. There are many websites out there where you can compile an idea book or board in one convenient spot.

By the yard. Weather is warmer and you have no where to go. Why not start planning a deck remodel, or fixing up your porch? Spending time planning now gives you a head-start when it’s time to build, or dig. Meetings outside and with proper social distancing are easy and possible.

While you’re wandering around your yard, is your siding looking like it has seen better days? Call Willet Construction for a recommendation as to what would be your best course of action. Time after time we are called to address a minor issue, or perform a separate project, only to find rot hiding underneath the siding. We can help you determine if something you see is an easy fix, or a symptom of a deeper problem.
