One of the best ways to enjoy the country life is to learn how to customize things. A lot of DIY projects can save you headaches, money, and moaning over problems. Often at times, things in our barns may not work how we want or need them to work. Luckily we can do something about it.
In this article, we will e taking a look at 3 trending DIY upgrades for barns. DIY stands for ‘do it yourself’. If you live in or have a barn, here are some upgrades you’ll definitely love. This will not mean that you won’t need to buy some items but you’ll save a lot of money.
Save Water With Waterless Toilets
Waterless toilets are toilets designed to save water. They do this by separating liquid waste from solid. The liquid waste is evaporated by a fan which is installed whereas, the solid waste is decomposed. Any remaining liquid is deposited into a small gallon. The smell is eliminated through a fan leaving your toilet smelling okay. The remainder of the urine can be poured out anywhere, and the compost can be supplied to organic stores or used to plant.
A waterless toilet is definitely a great way to save water. Luckily they can be installed without any professional help. To start off, purchase a very good waterless toilet. When this is done, you can make a little research and watch YouTube videos to help you install it by yourself. Having a waterless toilet will cut down on water usage and save you money.
Try A Fresh Coat Of Paint
Repainting is so underrated. People do not understand what a simple coat of paint can do to boost the outlook a barn has. It doesn’t matter if you paint the inside or just the outside, it can give you that new look you are aiming for. If you are going to paint, decide how long you would need to paint.
The time you would need depends on how experienced you are. It also depends on how big the barn is and how much time you can dedicate to it each day. To embark on this task, you simply need to purchase a can of paint and some brushes. I have found that it is always smarter to go9 with darker colors for painting barns. When you decide on your color, you can move on.
Painting is pretty straightforward. If you are at a loss, ask for help from someone with experience or simply look up some tutorials.
Solar is featuring in almost every aspect of our lives these days. With solar power, you will save quite a lot of energy and utility payments. You can choose to either install solar fully and let it power your barn or you can simply invest in some high-quality solar lamps.
With solar lamps, there is absolutely no need for external help. All you have to do is hook up your lamp and you are set to go. You simply have to be careful about the placement so that you can be sure it has access to sunlight as best as it can.
We earlier covered something on solar lighting, but for chicken coops. You should check it out!
