Build Things That Matter

We here at Family Handyman have been spending a lot of time improving our decks, yards, gardens and outdoor spaces lately.

On this page, you’ll find our collection of summer building and beautifying projects, including helpful guidance on everything from restoring your deck to pouring concrete for your patio to installing an energy-efficient ceiling fan to help keep your home cool during the hot summer months. We hope these projects will inspire and motivate you to make your home exactly what you want it to be, inside and out.
