We're a couple of weeks away from a major build and I'm frankly terrified. I'd love some tips for how to make getting through it with a bit of intact sanity. We've got three children, 7, 4 and 21 months and won't be moving out. There will be a temporary kitchen and at least one bathroom all through. Help needed with how to get along with the builders, how to survive the mess, and all the stuff I have yet to start worrying about! Thank you!
It will be pure hell! No help I know, but at least you'll be prepared. The mess is incredible - dust everywhere, and all the furniture in the wrong places. But you'll survive, and it will be worth it in the end.
