Whether it’s starting the plans for a remodeling project you haven’t had time for or swinging in the summer breeze in a hammock with an iced drink in hand, these 5 weekend activities will help you live intentionally and make the most of your summer weekend.
3. Get your home ready for vacation. Planning a trip this August? Put aside a bit of time this weekend to prepare for your trip by doing things like lining up a pet-sitter, arranging for someone to water your plants, and generally ensuring your house will be safe while you’re gone. Upgrade your home’s safety features by installing motion-activated lighting, or making sure trees and shrubs around the house are neatly trimmed. These relatively simple precautions will help make your home less of a target for thieves!
4. Turn that unused garage or shed into usable space. Why let that spare space in your garage or shed go to waste when you can transform it into something usable like an art studio, workshop, or game room? Once you decide what you want to transform the space into, your plans will help motivate you to get the space cleaned up before summer is over!
5. Slow down. Time flies when you’re having fun. Summer always feels like it flies by too quickly. Go through your schedule for the upcoming week and find out what you can cancel, delegate, or postpone. Once you’ve reclaimed some of your time, don’t fill it with anything. Practice the art of slow living so you can savor each moment of these summer days.

Concrete flooring has become one of the hottest new homebuilding trends, and it's easy to understand why! Concrete is incredibly strong and durable, which is why it's used for streets and driveways. Your floors are also a highway of sorts, and concrete flooring is the perfect solution to those numerous scratches and dents in your floor!
Besides the durability factor, it's also quite beautiful. Simply add dyes or etching techniques to that boring grey color, and you've just turned your floor into a stunning masterpiece.
One objection most people might think of right away is the weight. Concrete is heavy of course, but weight won't be a problem if you're putting new concrete floors on grade. The only time you might run into issues is if you want to install concrete on a subfloor supported by joists. In this case, you'll have to consult a structural engineer to find out if your floor can support that kind of weight. Lightweight concrete is a possible solution.
