Apartment Therapy - Good Questions: How Can I Live In My Apt. While I Remodel?
10/5/07 07:40 AM

My husband and I are in the middle of renovating sections of our house. We assumed these areas could be "contained" with plastic and the like and we would be able to remain in the house. And while our contractor is superb and his team incredibly careful and efficient, sharing one bathroom with the entire construction team, the dust, noise and emotional weirdness of seeing all of our personal belongings wrapped up in plastic and drop cloths was just too much to take. So, after the first few weeks, we moved out and now visit the house for weekly site meetings. Needless to say, this was a larger job, but nothing overly elaborate. I had a similar experience when renovating my teeny kitchen and bathroom in my old apartment, so I could just be a weakling, but if you can, I recommend trying to get out at least during the demolition period and whenever there is any sanding or sheet-rocking going on. Good luck!! I will be worth it!
