40.7 million people live in the southwestern U.S. Can we get a regional checklist? That was all winter work for us. We are back in the house now. It's been over 100 for 2 weeks. (except early mornings are still slightly below 70) Thanks!

@llskinne: Got ya beat - 114,555,744 people live in the Southern part of the US as of 2010 census. That represents 37% of all US peoples. In fact, the South is the US's most 16 populated states in the union.

So if Houzz gears its articles to the most populist areas of the country, it should be the South, not the North! LOL However, serial........ these 'to-do' monthly articles are just to remind everyone of things one can do to spruce up their homestead. If you live in an apt. you certainly wouldn't plan to paint the exterior of your home, would you?

The idea of these type articles is to remind you to make your own appropriate monthly cleaning, maintenance and repair lists regardless of where you live. If you aren't sure what you should do to clean, maintain or repair items in your own home, I suggest you contact your local Cooperative Extension services to see if they offer the educational services you need in your area. As an example, in my area, the Extension Service has a program called Families, Nutrition and Health which provide various educational offerings to maintaining your home including pest management, growing and preserving your own food and so on.
