It's that time of year! To remember all the projects you meant to do, but only remember once it's too cold outside! I do it too!
A Quick DIY project, that can easily be done inside your garage, is to insulate the garage doors. It took about an hour for me to do my nice old garage doors, but was a lot cheaper than buying new ones. And still looks pretty good too!
Here's the kit I bought from Lowe's that worked out for me, $60 per door and the instructions are pretty straight forward. Be prepared to clean up foam from everywhere when you're done!
Here's a look at one door completed and one left to go:
And the finished product: (I think it turned out looking pretty good for some doors that are decades old. It seems to have helped with the cold in the garage as well)
The backs of the foam have some lines scored in them to allow you to bend them in place. You'll have to cut thinner pieces to slide into edges of the door as well which is what causes the mess. A longer, sharp knife makes it easier to cut, but a box cutter will work just fine.

Here's another relaxed conversation with JB and Summer G., where
"I initially contacted JB regarding a house he had listed in the DFW area. This conversation led to him becoming our buyer's representative for the house we ultimately purchased. I was out of state and traveling constantly, but JB made extensive time to listen and understand our real estate needs. He helped us become mortgage pre-qualified very quickly, thoroughly explained the real estate purchase process, and navigated us through a rather complex market environment...
For me, after speaking with JB for just a few minutes about my complex situation, I truly felt that he "got it." For anyone interviewing prospective realtors, I recommend including JB in the list."
