I would look into more efficient window AC's. Its the end of the season clearance time now so there may be some bargains to be had now. The siding must be done if you want to keep your heating and cooling bills in check and can the driveway over coated? I got rid of my above ground pool years ago and I don't miss it one bit. My wife and I detested keeping out leaves and bugs and constantly having to vacuum it. The cost for the chemicals was enough that if we wanted to swim we would just go on a weekend get-a -way to a nice hotel with a pool. Fix where you live first.
