Get Your Home Game Ready

The big game is just around the corner – will your home be ready by February 6th? There’s nothing quite like the magic of inviting the guys over to feast on finger food while watching the most important football game of the year. However, the night will be even more unforgettable when you spend time now to complete a few easy projects that will take your home all the way to victory.

Four ways to get your home ready for the big game include:

A New Front Door
Greet your guests with a new front door by Masonite®. Easy to install, a new front door can be customized to complement your home’s existing style, or even to be a bold focal point for all to see as they pull in the driveway. Choose from basic styles that are simply stunning or even intricately patterned window designs to show off your home’s personality.

Prepare Your Deck
Even though you won’t want to miss a single second of the game – or commercials – sometimes you just need a moment away from your loud college buddies. That’s where your deck comes in. Perfect for escaping the chaos of adult men yelling at refs, your deck can provide you with the solitary peace you crave. Make sure yours is ready by installing under-railing lights, as well as clearing any lingering snow before your friends arrive.

Install Closet Barn Doors
During the pre-game home tour, show off to your friends by letting them see a newly installed sliding barn door at your guest bedroom’s closet. This unique feature will award you some man points while making your guests jealous, and will also serve as a nice upgrade for you to enjoy in the years ahead. Plus, your buddies who shouldn’t drive home can also get a second look at it later that night when they crash in the guest room.

Organize the Garage
Making sure your garage is in order is another great way to prepare your home for the night of the big game. By installing shelving and organizing your things, not only will the place look great when you show off your new truck rims to your buddies, but it will also clear the path to your extra fridge out there when drinks run low in the fourth quarter. Most importantly, cleaning your garage will give the Patriot fans somewhere to go when you kick them out of your living room.

The big game happens once a year, but these home projects will last a lifetime. Get started now, and enjoy them for many football seasons to come. To learn more, visit McCray Lumber and Millwork today.
