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!
