How to Live at Home During a Remodel



There are many advantages to living at home during a remodel or renovation, the biggest of which is that it’s significantly cheaper than staying in a hotel. If you’ve decided to live at home during this transition, be ready for all the inconvenience associated with construction. Keep the following tips in mind to ensure your stay is as safe and comfortable as possible:

  • Take note of the construction schedule. For privacy and security reasons, you should know exactly when workers will start coming into your home and when the work day will end.

  • Keep kids and pets away from the work area. They can get hurt around various equipment, and can cause delays to the project if they get in the way of workers or cause damage.

  • Pre-plan meals. Even if your kitchen isn’t completely out of commission during a kitchen renovation, it can be a challenge to cook a decent meal every day of a remodel. Pre-plan your meals before the work begins so you can have a frozen menu ready to be reheated in the microwave as needed.

  • Turn off your HVAC system. Construction dust spreads easily so there’s no need to help it along by running your HVAC unit. For your heating and cooling needs, you may have to rely on portable units until the work is done.

  • Always wear shoes. You never know what’s lying around on a construction site, so always make sure feet are protected.
