Home improvements, when executed well, raise the value of your property. This article will give you a few tips to get the most out of your next home improvement project.

Make your house energy efficient by placing weather striping in your doors and windows. Hardware stores feature this fix relatively cheap, and it seals air in and out, thus boosting the effectiveness of your home’s heating and cooling.

Brand new furniture, even from department stores, can break the budget. Look at yard sales and thrift stores for furniture to update the look of your home. You might find some hidden items that are special, like furniture. Some pieces will be in great condition, while others may require a little work and elbow grease to make them just right for you house.

To help free up counter space, install an over-the-range microwave. The microwave replaces your existing range hood, and vary largely in price and style. These models use a recirculating filter, making them ideal for use at home or in settings outside professional kitchens.

When you find that you have a water leak underneath your sink or a tap, never attempt fixing this on your own. Just put a container under the leak that will hold the runoff and call a qualified plumber.

These are just a few of the things you can do to improve your home. Keep learning all you can to better your home improvement skills. Advanced research can be make your project a success. Make sure you know how to get started and how to successfully complete the next project you have in mind.

Tremors
The tiny museum stood by the side of the dusty dessert road like a lone piece of driftwood in the sand. Murals faded by the sizzling California sun depict moments that put this town on the map. Just five dollars and I too was transferred into the world of cowboys, Indians, stagecoaches and The Wild West. After using fifteen minutes of my life viewing a mediocre show of all of the films that were shot in The Sierra Nevada Mountains, I got to see costumes and props used by the actors that my grandfather and grandmother adored at the time of their courtship. Patiently I walked through the exhibits to see Roy Roger’s costumes, the saddle that John Wayne straddled and the leather Stetson Hats, stained with the sweat of these men. Then I followed my brother’s voice, turned a corner, and felt my heart start pounding in amazement in amazement.
The secret back room was the home to my favorite exhibit, and one of my favorite childhood movies, The Tremors. The model of the General Store looked just as it did when I visited there so many times in my childhood. The autographed posters of Kevin Bacon and Reba Mc Entire held my attention as I circled every inch of their autographs with my eyes, daydreaming about where they first signed. Did they know that it was now here, in this shack in the center of the dessert? Did they know that their low budget film would become a cult-classic, or at least a classic to me? The models of the human eating worms were painted with pristine strokes and gentle details. They did not seem treacherous in this back room like they did on the screen when I was young. Instead, they were pieces of art, pieces of movie history, and pieces of my youth.
To others who came into the corner of the museum, these gross worms with tentacles flaring out of their mouth were disgusting and not as important as the spurs that Val Kilmer ore in Tombstone. But to me, the life-size foam props actually used in the movie symbolized a special time of my life. Those gross blind worms were what my brother and I flocked to the TV at night to see, over and over. We would snuggle in under the covers munching on buttered microwave popcorn that my dad bought in bulk at Wal-Mart. We’d keep each other company, even scaring one another, while our parents worked next door. Those alien-like creatures were a bond between us, and helped build a base for the relationship today.
So you see, sometimes a place does not have to be grand or expensive to make a special memory. Sometimes the silliest or insignificant objects to other people may be the most important to you. Who would have thought that a crummy museum in the middle of no-where, that is a home to one of the most ridiculous stories ever made, could bring back so many heart-warming memories?
