Spring clean like a pro.

by Shea Homes Colorado on March 3, 2016

 

Warmer days are just around the corner. But while we’re still stuck inside, why not get our spring cleaning done? After all, once it’s green and glorious outside, that’s where we’ll want to be. Not inside scrubbing the kitchen sink. And especially so at our Shea Homes Colorado communities, where there’s so much natural beauty to enjoy, with miles of trails and acres of open space. So kick off your spring cleaning with these strategies for efficiently knocking out the inside work. Then you’ll be ready for all the outdoor adventures to come.

Start by gathering your favorite tips at Shea’s Home Hints Pinterest board, a handy source for ideas on home and yard maintenance, cleaning, and updating home décor. If you’re not in the mood yet to get down and dirty, start with some high-level—yet highly satisfying—organizational projects. Like creating a home office filing system, including headers and sub-headers for everything from internet bills and garage door opener warranties to love letters and children’s artwork.

When Christmas is a wrap, where do you put it?

by Shea Homes Colorado on December 21, 2015

 

When it comes to the holidays—like so many things in life—the build-up is so much more fun than the take-down. Whether you celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah at your Shea home, chances are there’s some stowing away in your immediate future. Below are a few ideas to help streamline the process and make next year’s holiday set-up even easier. Cue the holiday music and eggnog one last time.

Holiday lights are the nemesis of many otherwise happy revelers. It seems as if they spend their off-season wriggling themselves into nasty knots. The solution? Wrap them neatly around sheets of cardboard before tucking them away.  Or around a coffee can, poking the plug into the can through an ‘X’ cut into the plastic top. When it comes to those heavy-duty exterior holiday lights, keep them on a portable hose reel. The wheels and handle make them easy to maneuver around the yard while you decorate.

Lights in Coffee Can            Store Christmas Lights

Ornaments can be especially fragile (and chock-full of priceless memories), so storage that prevents jostling is crucial. Try an egg carton or apple box for your smaller round ornaments. Slip the larger flat ornaments into your stockings.

Egg Cartons for Ornaments             Store Candles

Real Christmas trees are (mercifully) tossed, but artificial trees occupy space in your basement all year long. Familyhandyman.com suggests sliding them neatly into sleek, 8” diameter concrete form tubes. So smart.
