    Can you keep a couple rooms to sleep in while the works being done or is moving out the only option.

    It is really very tough situation, where to live during the renovation of our house.

    I think living in a motel or guest house is the best idea, although living here would be a little bit expensive but you would not face any problem there for example like becoming ready for the office or doing some work at laptop, or something else like that.

    I know this was mentioned by others, but When renovating our house we stayed at an extended stay hotel, and we liked this because it was close to the house, they provided breakfast and I didn't have to worry about bothering anyone. However, while we built our house, we bought a 36ft travel trailer that was very nice because we sold it at the end of our project and didn't spend any money on rent.

    I hope something works out for you!

    I stayed at my wifes parents house, friends or family is the best way to go unless you rather stay at a hotel, depends on your financial situation also I guess
