Unless you are building a custom home, you will most likely have to live in your home while the renovations are being performed. Living in a house that is under construction can be inconvenient and a bit of a nuisance, unfortunately. During the consultation process, we will discuss with our clients what the renovation process will look like and explain the accommodations you may have to make during the duration of the project.
