Should You Remain in Your House During a Home Renovation?

COVID-19 has forced multiple changes in the way we work and live – one of the most prevalent is working and learning from home. This, in turn, has resulted in a substantial increase in home renovations.

If you’re considering any major additions and/or updates to your residence, you may be wondering whether or not you should remain in the home, or if it instead makes more sense to find alternate arrangements until the project is complete.

There can be advantages and drawbacks to each option. For example, if you opt to remain in your home during the renovation, it is important that you set up space to live – which includes sleeping and cooking areas, as well as the use of at least one functional bathroom.

If you have small children, it is recommended that you set up some ground rules with them so that they don’t wander into the work area (and possibly get injured by tools, nails, or other items that are in that space).

You may also want to consider renting a temporary space at a storage facility to put various belongings that could be in the way, as well as for valuables that you can lock up for the time being in a safe, offsite location.

Should you decide to reside in another location during all or part of your home renovation project, some options may include staying in a(n):

  • Extended stay hotel
  • Temporary rental homes
  • Camper / RV (either onsite or in a different location)
