Not much

Maybe Improve the production from fields, build windmills etc if there are none ,fix any big issues like drainage or even cut down woods,swamps, scrubland to create more farmland etc but most lords would be working on stuff like that anyway to improve the  yields from all they own.

The Cerwyn's should invest an inordinate amount of time into creating Clegane-like warrior-sons. Make Castle Cerwyn the center for all the Northern knights to train, and build yourself up economically by accepting wards and squires. 

The Hornwood's need to get rid of Ramsay ASAP, invest in timber and marry some houses in the Vale. And legitimize Larence so that the house actually has a future.

The Tallhart's should populate the entire Torrhen's River and use it as a robust Western trade root from Oldtown and Lannisport to Winterfell. Also, fresh water supply, build a city, unite effectively against any raiders. This really only works with a charted Sunset Sea and an integrated ironborn, and it's been 2000 years of that not happening, but they could give it a shot.
