Live in a 3rd floor condo with 2 small balconies (that get lots of sun - south & west facing) and a small gated private space outside my front door that's in shade 24/7.
Favorite area of home improvement:
Gardening - inside of kitchen corner windows (east & south facing so get good light), balconies (hot & dry) and the entry (full shade).
Bathroom remodeling (work-in-process)
Kitchen laundry area remodeling
Ceiling fans for cathedral ceilings in bedrooms & living room
