Living Through A Home Renovation Brisbane
Is it possible? For many reasons, it can be necessary to stay in your home while you or a company are doing home renovations Brisbane.
If you’re DIY there are a few things you need to keep in mind.
- Construction is messy – dust and tools everywhere.
- Foot traffic (especially children!) through construction areas into living areas will spread the dust around and can be hazardous.
- Certain appliances might be out of service for a period of time. You can fairly easily keep a small refrigerator and microwave around. However, when it comes to a stove or even a kitchen sink, they might be unavailable for months.
- Hot water might be unavailable if the plumbing or electrical is being renovated, as well as showers.
- You can forget about sleep-ins or downtime if you are a couple doing the renovation, living amongst it means it will always be in your mind
There are some advantages to staying in a house while renovating, though!
- If you’re right there in the thick of it, you have the power to make changes if required. This means in the event there is a problem, it can be solved quickly without running around missing phone calls or emails. Experiencing the tearing down and rebuilding means you are able to make different decisions if safety or other requires it.
- Some renovations take less than 6 months to complete, which means moving out would have been expensive and inconvenient. This takes into account the minimum lease on a house is usually 6 months, so you would be paying twice. Hotels are also pricey, depending on location and quality.
- Each milestone you hit while living through home renovation Brisbane will feel amazing
