Are you building your own home? Need somewhere to stay while your home is being built? We can help!
One key challenge when building your home is where to stay in the meantime. Few of us have the resources to stay in our existing home while our house is being built.
So where do you stay?
Do you rent a hotel room for months at a time? Do you stay in a trailer or RV? Do you stay on site?
All those things are possible, but we recommend furnished housing.
You can rent month by month, houses are fully furnished and equipped and you can stay close to your new home and watch it being built.
Housing options for self builders
Of the million details you have to address when building your own home, where to stay while it’s being built is often overlooked.
Considering how important it is, that’s a mistake!
Your options are typically:
Rent a motel or hotel
Renting a motel or hotel for anything up to a year will be expensive!
Those four walls will also begin closing in on you long before your house is built. The combination of single room living, lack of cooking space, freedom to wander and the inconvenience of living among other people will soon wear thin.
Trailer or RV
Parking a trailer or RV on site is one way to live while your house is being built.
It might not be a comfortable way though. If your plot has room while keeping you out of the way of heavy machinery, it might work.
That is as long as you don’t mind the noise, dust, swearing and bad music that’s a staple for most construction sites!
Not all self builds will have the space for a trailer or RV alongside everything the contractor needs to build your home.
Keep your current home while your new one is built
In an ideal world, you would keep living in your current home while your new house it being built.
How many of us can pay for an entire house to be built without selling our current home?
How many of us could qualify for a large enough mortgage to cover our current house and pay for a new one?
Not many of us that’s for sure!
So, what’s the alternative?
Furnished rentals while your house is being built
A furnished rental is the answer. Pay by the month, rent by the month and everything is included.
You can place all your stuff safely in storage, live near your new home or work and live in comfort until your new home is built.
It’s the easiest, more comfortable way to live while you’re building a new home!
With locations across the country, in cities, rural areas, small towns and anywhere you care to live, they are as convenient as it gets.
Your rent covers everything. All utilities, cable or satellite TV, internet or WiFi and use of development amenities.
All the space, warmth, central air and privacy of home without getting in anyone’s way.
Furnished rentals are flexible too.
If your home is finished early, end your rental early. If the project runs over, stay for another month or two.
Just let us know in plenty of time and we’ll handle the rest.
You get your own account manager and have nothing to worry about. We handle the booking, liaise with the landlord, handle utilities and services.
All you need to do is turn up, collect the keys and unpack.
If you’re building your own house and need somewhere safe and warm to stay, furnished housing is the answer!
