When it comes time to re-do your roof, put up white tile, or another light colored substance. This will reflect a lot of the heat and will keep your attic cooler. This will make your cooling and heating bills less expensive.

Remember to put good ventilation (e.g. a window) in your bathroom. Humidity caused by hot baths and showers can result in the growth of mold. Painting over mold will not totally kill it off. Instead, try to find something that will stop its growth altogether. Try putting in ventilation or a window in order to dehumidify the area.
If you feel you need to spruce up your living room, add a bold print to give it some style and personality. Animal prints, when used in an accessory piece, can be very fun.
Most building supplies are expensive and prone to theft. Whenever they are not in use, building supplies and tools should be kept safe. If your home has lockable doors and windows, keeping them inside is fine. If you house is not complete, and impossible to lock, consider buying a lockable container.
