If you are having your home renovated be prepared for a lot of noise, dust and interruptions – depending on what you are having done, of course. If only one room is being renovated you may be able to stand remaining in the same house, but if more than that is scheduled, you may want to think about contacting the removalists to move you out so the renovators and builders have free rein.
The noise factor
You may not have experienced living in a house where there is constant banging and the whine of a saw going on and off all day. The latter is a bit like being in the dentist’s chair with the high pitched noise of the drill grating on your nerves. You have to be strong to put up with it. But at the dentists, you at least know it will be over in a few minutes.
