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.

Go into hibernation for a while. grin

It's effort but the results are worth it (she says hopefully - we aren't doing building as such but are living with a temp kitchen and plaster everywhere)

I think the main thing that's getting me through is the vision of the end.
