Hey, we’re not the only ones maybe a little over-excited about the debut of the Netflix prequel series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp. Addictive home-improvement site Houzz has published a whole list of tips that will help you turn your own home into a reasonable replica of Camp Firewood.

Houzz agrees that steps and railings can make excellent perching posts.
