10 Expert Tips for Staying Sane During a Home Reno

One of the best things about being a co-host on HGTV Canada’s Backyard Builds is that a client’s indoor quality of life can go virtually uninterrupted while major updates happen outside the home.

But don’t be mistaken: I’m no stranger to the everyday compromises of living through full-scale interior renovations. I began my career as a house flipper and have lived through the rubble… from being forced to shower at the gym to washing dishes in the bathtub. I’ve also worked with plenty of homeowners who have been subjected to the same circumstances.

Suffice to say, I’m here to tell you that yes, it’s possible to renovate and stay sane! Here’s how.
