Renovating your house can take sometime, depending on how serious the renovation is. The last thing you want to do is expose your family to the excessive noise and dangerous renovation equipment. Not only that, renovation can be quite dangerous for your kids. So you are probably better off just letting the contractor do what they do and live somewhere else until renovations are done.
We have some suggestions for you to consider as options of places you can go while your house gets a makeover:
Rent another house or apartment
Thanks to services like Airbnb, it is easy for anyone to find accommodation anywhere. You can check out the location from the comforts of your own and contact that owner to discuss dates and rates. With thousands of locations in both US and Canada, it is easy for anyone to find a place to stay at almost any location at a reasonable price so you don’t have to spend too much.
Motel or hotel
If you prefer to have your room made for you and don’t want the hassle of having to make food and what not. We recommend you check a nearby motel or hotel. Motels are cheaper than hotels and aren’t luxurious. So if you have the budget, then we recommend going to a hotel, especially if you have a family.
The good thing, about finding a place nearby is that it allows you to constantly check the progress of your home renovation to ensure it is going according to what you wanted and discussed. However, if your renovation is scheduled to take a few weeks then rather than just waiting around for it to be done at a temporary accommodation, why not take your family for a vacation.
This will allow your whole family time to relax and get their mind of things, including the renovation. There are exceptional vacation club like Occidental Vacation Club that offers membership. Members get great offers on rooms and other facilities within the resorts of the club. The best part is, these resorts are located in an exotic location which will allow your whole family to have a new experience. This option is slightly more expensive than the other two but rather than just moving 2-3 blocks away, taking a vacation allows your whole family to have an experience and enjoy.
When deciding to stay away from your house you need to consider your overall finances first. Renovations can be costly so be sure not to stretch yourself. If you do not have the budget to pay for a stay then you can maybe ask a relative or a friend if they can spare some room for you.
Don’t subject your family to the stress of renovation if the job is big. Arrange for a temporary place to stay or take a vacation to give them a chance to getaway.
