It feels funny writing a blog post. I don't even know what to write.

Writing a blog used to be a breeze.

5 Exterior Additions That Can Make People Turn Their Heads

When you own a piece of property, you can become an artist. With the home and yard as your canvas, you can envision the perfect residence. The additions you place can make people turn their heads in wonderment and awe. After all, there's nothing in the rule book of life that says you have to conform with the ideas of other people. That is, unless you live in a HOA governed area. Here are several of those additions that may inspire you to be creative.


Waterfalls can offer an incredible visage to any property. Although they can take a bit to construct, they are often the center-most attraction of the lawn in which they are built. It can also provide a incredible place to sit and relax while reading your favorite book. Some people will even install small pools complete with outdoor goldfish or koi.

Miniature Stream

Ever thought about how nice it would be to have a stream running through your property? It's not all that difficult to the right contractor. A small stream that recycles its own water gives the property a sense of life and movement. It can also be nice to listen to at night like a babbling brook.

Newly Reformed Deck

Decks are excellent additions to the property as they essentially give you an outdoor room for living space. With a large enough addition, you could easily host a barbecue for any reason. Decorate the deck with plant life or some other attraction and people may be eager to visit.

Fresh Coat of Paint

If it's been a while since you've painted the exterior of the house, a fresh coat could give it a like-new appearance. It can also help protect it from the elements such as ultraviolet rays from the sun. Change the color altogether and the neighbors will definitely notice.

General Landscaping

Adding gardens, planter boxes or trees can give the yard a completely new look. This is especially true if the yard is currently nothing more than a flat piece of dirt. Not only will this addition turn heads, but it will also improve your overall view of the property itself. You might be amazed at what grass, trees and a few rose bushes can do for your attraction to the property.

From simple additions such as building stairs for a deck to elaborate pools and ponds, there are so many things you can do. You don't have to settle for what's available in the yard. With a little creativity and the right contractor, anything is possible.

I just hate reading your blog, and I love it at the same time... But yes, I've been peeking and sneaking and you did not disappoint. One, two posts, and I get the feeling that I was looking for... Loss. Terrible loss. Your loss. It feeds my curiosity and at the same time it awakens my sleeping mind.

I can't write when I'm happy.

Keeping Your Family and Home Safe

To keep your home safe, you may have installed a security system and have it regularly monitored by a home security monitoring company at a central station. This is the best way to keep your home protected from burglars and fire, but there are some additional steps you can take to help prevent these disasters.

How to Prevent Burglars 

  • Keep all doors, windows, gates, patio doors and garage doors locked. If you have a sliding door, put a stick in the running grove, so the door cannot be slid open after the lock is picked 
  • Outdoor lights are a great deterrent to robbers. Lights with motion sensors will flood your yard with light as soon as a robber steps on to your property 
  • Set up a neighborhood watch. This will help the whole neighborhood. You home will never look vacant because your neighbors will pick up any papers or mail and turn on and off lights. You should put signs along the streets that clearly say the neighborhood is protected 
  • Keep your garden neat and clean. Burglars like to hide in bushes before they break into a house

 How to Prevent Fire 

  • Never leave stoves, candles, space heaters and any other hot objects unattended 
  • Replace frayed or damaged electric cords 
  • Have furnaces and stoves regularly maintained 
  • Install smoke alarms and check them regularly 
  • Keep a functioning fire extinguisher in your kitchen and basement 

Vacation Safety Tips
According to statistics, burglars prefer to rob a building where they are absolutely sure there is no one inside. When you go away for several days or weeks, you need to make your house appears to be occupied. This may not fool everyone, but it will deter most attempts of break-in.

  • Set your alarm system and tell your monitoring company that you will be away for a specific period of time • Make sure you neighbors or someone else picks up your mail and newspapers 
  • Put your lights on a timer, including outdoor lights. You can even put a television on a timer to give the appearance that someone is home 
  • Make sure all your doors and windows are locked before you leave 

Investing in a home security system that is monitored by a central station is your best option for keeping your family and possessions safe from burglars. In many cases, this type of security system will also reduce your homeowner’s insurance premiums.
