3 Ways to Make Your House Livable During a Home Renovation, Ewa, Hawaii

A home renovation can give your living space the facelift it needs. However, these projects take time, and if you don’t want to pay for a hotel or secondary living space, you’ll need to coexist with the renovation dust and equipment. Here are three ways to handle the situation.

3 Tips for Living in Your House During Home Renovations

1. Establish Expectations

Before the project begins, meet with your contractor and discuss a timeline for the project. Make sure their schedule doesn’t hinge on you being home when you’ll be at work or taking children to school or other activities. An understanding of the timeframe and schedule will make the process much smoother.

2. Leave Space for Yourself

It’s important to leave yourself at least one area where you can take refuge. Whether this space is a bedroom, home office, or your back porch, make sure it’s an area where you can sit down and relax comfortably.

3. Be Diligent With Dust Covers

It might feel like a chore to put down dust covers, but it’s much easier than trying to constantly clean a layer of construction dust off every flat surface. Before the contractors do demolition work, make sure they’ve put down plastic sheeting and taped off doorways to reduce the amount of cleaning you’ll have to do after they leave.
