Throughout the entire homebuilding process, we do all of the heavy lifting for you. You never have to stress over the details or feel overwhelmed by any step. Once you’re moved in, however, it’s always a good idea to have a few trusted tools in your back pocket.
Check out our list of the best tools to keep in your home:
A complete set comes with a variety of head sizes to get into all kinds of spaces. When you’re completing basic projects like tightening cabinet hardware, this set will be your best friend.
Make sure that the head of your hammer is smooth to avoid damage to any surface that you’re working on. Get one with a grip that feels the most comfortable to you!
There are many things you can do with a sturdy cordless drill, including creating holes in wood without splits. With a full charge, you can take your drill anywhere without worry.
Accurate measurements of furniture, valuables, and walls are a must whenever you decide ro remodel. Pro tip: you’ll appreciate a measuring tape that fits in your pocket when you’re out.
A handy general tool, your utility knife will be helpful in many different situations, and especially in the beginning of your move when you’ll be cutting open taped-boxes.
Leaf Rake and Snow Shovel
New Jersey is no stranger to fall leaves and winter snow, and these two tools are absolutely essential. Keep your front and back yards tidy with tools that feel comfortable in your hands!
A ladder’s purpose speaks for itself, just make sure not to walk underneath it! (Just kidding…)
Easy to store and durable, zip ties are great for a wide variety of things — from fastening flowers together to attaching tags to luggage.
When you’re working with pliers, a strong tool with a firm grip will be your best aid. Different sizes and shapes work for different projects and spaces, so why not get a few kinds?
If you enjoy building your own furniture and completing various home projects, a great handsaw will help you get the job done.
There’s no better feeling than moving into your dream home. Once you’ve made it, having a few handy tools available will save you a last minute trip to the store when you need them most!
