Prep Blog Review: House Projects To Start In The Spring

Recommended Posts



I love spring! Is the perfect time to start new projects around the house, in my garden, for my homestead, and take my prepping goals to the next level. Every new project means learning a new survival skill or practicing an old one, and you can transform these projects into a fun family activity.



If you are having some extra time and you are looking for cool, fun and easy spring prepper projects, for this week’s Prep Blog Review I’ve gathered four articles on this topic.


Do you have other spring projects on the way? Share them in the comment section!

2. Making Furniture and Other Structures With Sticks


“If you’re living off the grid, chances are you are in a rustic setting and possibly/most likely have a rustic dwelling, making-furniture-with-sticks-logo.jpgmaybe even a log cabin that you built by hand (that would be awesome).


Well, what would fit with that rustic theme better than rustic furniture?


Clearing the Land


When you make your homestead location, chances are there will be a lot of trees there that you will be cutting down to clear a spot for your home and garden areas.


Besides the heavier logs that come from cutting trees that can be used for making boards, beams, and split rails, you are also going to amass quite a pile of sticks.


No, seriously, there will be a huge pile of sticks. So why not put those sticks to good use? After all, waste not want not, right?”

4. Smart Ways to Reuse Things


“My grandparents never threw away a thing that could have been used later on.Reuse-Things.jpg


They were the old time preppers: stockpiling and re-purposing almost everything.


Today we live in a throwaway society, where even our water comes in a disposable, single use bottle.


Electronics and other consumer goods are expected to last until the next, better model comes out.


Our landfills are filling up and this throwaway mentality benefits only the producer who can sell more.”
