3 Easy DIY Projects for Your Louisville Home for Under $300 Each

By Family Realty, LLC

LOUISVILLE – Summer is perfect time of year because thanks to longer days we have more time to spend outside and if you plan on selling your Louisville Home in the coming months you can use that extra time to increase the value of your home with one of these simple DIY projects.

Garden Arbor

Tools needed – Screwdriver, cordless screw driver, tape measure and hammer.

Time – Between 3 and 6 hours

Cost - $200 to $300

Tip – Choose a climbing plant like a rose bush or fragrant plant for your arbor because, you can literally have those plants grow and climb your arbor over time.

Garden arbors are especially easy to install and they look fantastic especially if you use them as an entry point to your lawn or garden.

Most garden arbors come in ready to assemble kits and typically are about seven feet high and between three and four feet wide.

Window Awnings

With the summer heat it literally pays to install window awnings on your Louisville Home because this will help you to use your air conditioner less and they will also help your home to be more energy efficient at the same time.

Tip – Install window awnings on south and west facing windows.

Tools Needed – Adjustable wrench, cordless drill, tape measure, hammer and drill.

Time – 1 to 2 hours per awning.

Cost - $150 to $200 per awning kit.

Air Conditioner Condenser Screen

Another great renovation which you can easily add to your Louisville Home is an air conditioner condenser screen.

Tools Needed – Hammer, screw drivers, saw and wood working tools.

Time – 2 hours or more depending on if you buy a kit or build an A/C screen yourself.

Cos - $100 or less

A/C screens are an easy DIY fix because you can easily build one out of used fencing materials or purchase a ready-made kit online.

Cover that ugly air conditioner condenser with an attractive A/C screen and keep you’re A/C running this summer when buyers come to view your Louisville home
