During building your glorious new palace, did you...
Rent another place
Stay in your existing house
Hire/buy a caravan/log cabin/Winnebago
Move in with rellies ( confused )
???
And how was it?

we stayed put. we felt by the time we'd rented a smaller place and paid storage it was best option.

caravan. saved loads in rent, was a experience! However I would do it again just beacause we saved so much money, also know someone who rented and they still paying for it now ouch!

If I had heaps of money I wouldnt go down the caravan route again as it was so hard in the winter.. Only just finished our build taken so so long, was helpful being on site though..

If you do go for the caravan route dont buy a static unless it insulated, if I had to do it again I would buy a good tourer which you can still use and go in holiday in, if you have any money left to go on holiday that is..

Moved in with my parents down the road for 10 months shock
We couldn't afford to rent and it was warmer than a caravan, but we were definitely ready to moved out at the end!

lived in it ... had real snow on the Christmas tree in the lounge that year! .... DH said it would be character building ! rubbish - was bloody cold, dirty, dusty and a total nightmare !! NEVER AGAIN !!!
