October is a great time to prepare your new (and older) home for winter. At Legacy Homes of Pueblo, we have a suggested to-do list for you.
Reverse Ceiling Fans: Switch the fan to run in a clock-wise direction. This will pull the warm air at the ceiling down into the room.
Clean Gutters and Downspouts: Throughout the summer leaves, bugs and other debris build up. Fall cleaning insures proper rain and snow flow.
Replace Batteries in Smoke Detectors: Although your detector will start chirping when the battery is low, doing this now will prevent it alerting you at an inconvenient time.
Turn Off / Blow Out Irrigation System: Water left in your irrigation system can freeze and damage your system.
Remove Hoses from Bib: Leaving the hose attached can form ice in your hose bib, causing damage.
Call Chimney Sweep: If you have a wood fireplace or pellet stove, this is an essential step every year to clear debris and keep things free-flowing.
Clean Window Sash: Dirt and debris can collect and cause the weep holes to become blocked, thus not allowing the proper drainage.
Check Snow Blower and Shovels: In the event of an early snow, it's a good idea to have these in working order.

Have you tossed around the idea of building a new home? Legacy Homes is here to help, of course. We highly reccomend an extremely informative book, "Building Your Home, An Insider's Guide" by Carol Smith. In it, she details everything throughout the entire building process - from financing to location, home design to construction sequence and closing to warranty service.
Looking for a new home, but not the wait of construction time? Legacy Homes of Pueblo has the perfect home in Pueblo West on Challenger Drive - the Pinon floorplan. This open-concept, quality driven, four bedroom, two bathroom home awaits you. It features a rear covered patio, hardwood floors, granite and a spa-like master bath. It also features a sunken living room. $292,900.
We are busy building several of our very popular Piñon homes and these beautiful properties are for sale! Two are nearing completion; one at the end of May and the other beginning of June. Both are located on Pueblo West's north side.
