Short-term Rentals

With the possible chance that you would be vacated out of your home for months at a time, a great option would be a short-term rental apartment. Many come semi-furnished or fully-furnished with accommodations and amenities that you may need. Amenities such as a fully-equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, office space, sofas, table and chairs are often included. This gives a more cozy and comfortable feel as you can cook your own meals, do your own laundry and continue to do your typical regiment in your home away from home.

Many standard and traditional hotels will just deal with a standard room giving the basic living essentials such as a bedroom, closet, a bathroom, a mini-fridge and a few more conveniences. They are normally more costly and confined and bigger ones will set you back much more for space. If you do not mind spending an extra amount of money for the luxurious lifestyle then this is right for you. Moreover, this would work for you if you prefer to have constant service. Rather than worrying about washing your own dishes and laundry, you can always call for room service and housekeeping.


Family and Friends

It never hurts to ask a family member or friend that you are close to for a place to stay while your home is being redone. You may already feel at home at their place and it would be more cost-effective in comparison to spending money on a temporary residence elsewhere. Additionally, it would be a safer choice as staying at home during construction can lead to health and safety concerns such as encountering mishaps or inhaling particles or dust.
