Can we live at home while it is rebuilt?

Staying at home will save a lot of money on rent, the hassles of moving, or of putting up with your in-laws. It is a great way to appreciate daily construction progress and to get to know the tradesmen who are creating your new place. However…

A building site is hazardous. Even the tidiest site will have small sharp objects on the ground, power tools and climbable scaffolding. It is an unacceptable workplace, health and safety risk for your builder, should anything happen to your child. Unless you can guarantee that you can completely separate off the construction zone with its own access, don’t even consider it.
