Life can be busy and tending to houselhold items can easily slide to the bottom of your list. Doing the little things one at a time will help prevent big problems later on.
Here are five quick and easy fixes you can do around your home in small batches:

Do the Little Things – 
Walk through your home and make a list of any broken electrical plates, locks that need lubrication, sinks or tubs that need caulk.

Clean One Closet – Choose an easy one to clean at first and pick a day to do it in. Pull everything out and start from scratch. Make a pile of things to give away or donate. A good rule is: if you haven’t used it in the last year get rid of it.

Conduct an Energy Audit – Call the utility company and ask for an energy audit. They will make recommendations to help you improve the efficiency of your home.

Clean the Dryer Vent – To achieve maximum energy efficiency and to prevent a fire hazard, clean the dryer vent twice a year. Remove the tube that attaches to the machine and clear out the lint. Don’t forget to clean the outside vent, too.

Jeff & Emily Silva first heard about Porcupine Real Estate on the Northeast Shooters forums. As residents of Massachusetts, they knew they wanted to move to New Hampshire for the lifestyle, beauty and affordability of the state. 

With Jeff’s job as a sign maker at Seaport Signworks in Newburyport, and family still in Massachusetts, the couple decided to look for homes in Rockingham county. They ultimately found a home in Nottingham, and they love the small-town vibe of this town with a population of 5,000. Jeff & Emily are enjoying the relaxed, stress-free pace and don’t miss the traffic or noise of their previous home: "We’ve just about settled in here and I have to say, we love it!  The peace, the quiet, the friendly people.  It’s just fantastic.  Making our home in NH was a great decision and one that we’ll enjoy for a long time."

Welcome home, Jeff & Emily!
