A little over a year & a half ago we were referred to HomeTalk by our good friend Paul Hamtil of Hamtil Construction. HomeTalk is a site designed primarily for homeowners looking for advice &/or wanting to show off their DIY projects or crafts. Ahh but what’s so special about that, aren’t there thousand of sites like that? Well there are but this site also happens to reach out to bloggers & professionals and what is really rare, they manage to pull it all together.
So how do they does this? Well that is a good question & I would say a lot has to do with those behind the scenes (like Miriam) realizing why each group would like to be on a site. One also has to give props to many of the pros like Paul, Douglas Hunt, Bob from Woodbridge Environmental & numerous others for simply reaching out to help answer questions without giving a sales pitch.
One of the other ways is by reaching out to many of the pros to help promote not only HomeTalk but also themselves via guest posts, or TV pieces which brings us to todays guest article on Homes.com that we helped contribute to along with SawHorse. So with no further ado, let me encourage you to not only check out the piece but also HomeTalk – I don’t think you will be disappointed…
1. What exterior home maintenance projects should be done with the change in seasons?
I answered this one primarily based off our normal Monthly Maintenance Checklists, in particular March’s. As many know I redid them for HomeTalk this last year which can be found on this board: Home Maintenance. These all have links back to the original article which includes links to other tips & tricks.
2. Likewise, what interior home maintenance projects should I focus on?
For this one I answered based on our “Walk About” concept we generally focus on in January & July
3. What easy & inexpensive “green” projects can I do to make my home more eco-friendly?
This question was answered By Matt Hoots owner of SawHorse. For some regular readers SawHorse might ring a bell and that is because that is where our good friend Carl The Green Curmudgeon Seville used to be at before going solo. They also happen to lead the way on EarthCraft certified home renovation projects – way to go guys.
