The peel-and-stick artwork stickers are simple to apply and easy to remove.

For an almost instant decorative touch to a room that you won’t live with forever, an adhesive wall art kit is an easy way to kickstart your DIY skills. The peel-and-stick artwork stickers are simple to apply and easy to remove with no danger of damaging the walls. Think dorm room, nursery, anywhere a permanent wallpaper won’t work.

These are not cutouts of contact paper; they’re stylish designs made of a vinyl peel and stick material in die-cut shapes. The designs are washable, removable and can be repositioned as you apply them to the wall.

A homeowner can apply the design to a 48-by-36-inch wall design for $75, the cost of the artwork. You’ll need a pencil, yardstick, tape measure and level. If you need to cut the design, use a pair of scissors or a utility knife. The walls should be clean free of dust, dirt or oil, and dry. To hire out the job, add $75 for a wallpaper hanger to do the job for a total of $150 for labor and material. You’ll find the designs sold at home centers and the website www.wall-pops.com.

Take a look at your bill each month and make sure the costs are within a normal range. If you’ve been in your home a while, you should have a pretty good idea of what heating will cost each month. Many utility companies also make older bills available online – if you suspect something’s up, compare this year’s bill to previous years. An unexpectedly high gas or electric bill can sometimes indicate a hidden problem.

Q: Tim, I think I’ve got a good idea. I’m re-roofing two of my barns with metal roofing. I was thinking of extending the roof past the walls 18 inches so dripping water falls farther away from the barn walls. Right now I’ve got gutters and I’m tired of them clogging up with leaves and debris. What is the best practice when it comes to gutters or no gutters? What about sizes for both gutters and downspouts? What would you do if you were me? —Carol K., Mio, Mich.
