7 Tips For Staying Sane During Your Major Home Renovation

Posted by John Ferracuti

Nov 7, 2014 8:00:00 AM

A home renovation can be one of the most rewarding and frustrating experiences any family can go through. Combining work, school, pets and kids with dirt, noise, workers and rooms that can’t be used — and you’ve got a recipe for family discord, stress and even temporary mental breakdowns.

Our best advice: Visit an all-inclusive resort for the duration of the project. All right, that might get a bit expensive. If you don’t have a wealthy relative willing to share a wing of his or her mansion, then you’re going to need to figure out how to live in a construction zone. It won’t be easy, but with the right attitude and well-thought-out strategies, you can make the experience more pleasant.

And perhaps the greatest mystery of all: What happens to the stuff you throw into your rental dumpster bin after it leaves your property?

For many customers, the old adage “out of sight, out of mind” applies when it comes to the stuff they deposit into a Bin There Done That dumpster bin. Once they rid their homes of material they no longer want or need, they simply don’t care where it goes.

But some like to know where the bits and pieces of their lives end up. However, like many things in life, the answer is a bit more complicated than it might seem on the surface.

The kids are gone, off to college where they can gain an education, get a great high-paying job and take care of you in your old age. In the meantime, you’ve got some work to do. The nest is empty.

If this were a movie script, the argument would be over turning their vacant bedrooms into a sewing room, an exercise space or a place to meditate on the meaning of life. But before that debate can be settled, the rooms have to be cleaned. We’re not talking about running a vacuum, and it’s far more than just the bedrooms that need work.
