Creating Your Own Vacation Spot

News | 7th Apr 2010
L1050642 Everywhere you go, you’ll hear stories of people affected by the economic downturn.  Maybe you’ve personally had to make changes, like reducing vacations, or spending more time in the office to maintain your income and job security.  Maybe your hours have been reduced.  Times like these are when your home becomes even more important.  Your home can be a place a refuge for you, a place to step back and enjoy some quiet moments. 
 
Now is the time to look outside and create sacred space where you can relax and entertain for less, while at the same time improving your home’s value.  When you spruce up your outdoor porches,areas – porches, patios, and decks, you can take comfort in them now, and also make your home more appealing to future buyers.
The Propane Education & Research Council, states that 35% of homeowners have a finished outdoor room and 34% say they are planning to design one in the next two years.  Some people even install swimming pools or spas.  While these major investments contribute to quality of life and the beauty of your home, you can also see a immediate difference with some small changes.
 
Here are some ideas to consider:
1. Outdoor lighting units
2. Gas grills with cooking and food preparation surfaces
3. Outdoor fire pits or fireplaces
4. Patio heaters
5. Mosquito/bug eliminators
Have fun creating your own vacation spot!
