Loking For Movers- Renovating My House

Jun 9, 2008
Moving everything out (for construction) and then moving it all back in again!

When you live in a house, you are more capable of creating a full sense of home than any other residential setting. You have full control over repairs, and even better you have full control over any renovations. You can create the home you want out of the house you have!

However, major construction projects often include many elements that require a temporary residential relocation. Between the destruction (tearing it all down so you can put it back up the way you want it) and the chemicals / tools used while this project takes place, it can make for an uncomfortable living situation.

So what are your temporary residential relocation options? This often depends on the project size, because that will affect how long you will need a residential relocation. If it is a fairly small project, many hotels offer weekly rates, and you can rent a room for a week or two while your home is undergoing construction.

However, the larger the project the longer your residential relocation will last. You couldnt really be too comfortable staying in a motel room for a lengthy period of time, especially with a family.

Obviously, you want to remain somewhere local to your home, since this is only a temporary residential relocation and most homeowners are fully involved with any construction projects involving their home.

So even if you own a second home or camp, it wouldn't make much sense to travel so far for a temporary residential relocation. Since a construction project can be so pricy, you will want to find ways to save money for your temporary residential relocation in the event that a hotel room just doesn't cut it.

So you have to put some thought into a very serious question. Can you (temporarily) stay with your parents or in laws?

There is always the apartment option, and there are apartments available without a lease so you won't need to commit to a residential relocation term that will stick you.

Then, the next problem arises. Wherever you are staying, it is probably a smaller space than your home. What to do with all of your belongings?

If you are one of the rare few who are willing to do a temporary residential relocation into your parents or in laws home, even then there is not enough room to bring all the furniture out of your house and into their basement. (Even if there were, many parents are uncomfortable with this much of a commitment. They already got rid of you once!)

In the case of an apartment, you will probably be looking for the smallest and cheapest apartment you can. This is, after all, only a temporary residential relocation. Would you really try to cram a house sized load into a small apartment?

Finally, the problem still exists if you are temporarily staying in a hotel or a motel room until the construction in your home is finished (or close enough to finished that you can comfortable move back in).

Whether your residential relocation is expected to last 6 months or 6 days, your best option is to keep your belongings into a storage unit. This includes everything from furniture (that you will not need in your temporary residence) to clothes and other miscellaneous items that you will not be using.

The best thing you can do if your house is undergoing a construction project is to move everything out. This will protect your belongings, because there are many just in case scenarios that may occur with a large destruction and reconstruction project.

The best part is when you move everything back into your home, you can redecorate! There is nothing like re-arranging furniture, most people tend to do this in the spring. When you have just finished a large construction project, why not top it off with a different lay out in every room?

It may be a hassle to move everything out and then back in, and it may be a hassle to temporarily go through a residential relocation. But in the end, when you return home it is more than well worth it!
