Temporary Housing For Moves
Moving can be a nightmare for some families, and sometimes it can take weeks just to get the new house ready to be lived in. In such situations, one must consider temporary housing.
If you have a sufficient budget, then the preferable option would be to find furnished temporary housing. This is about as close to home as temporary housing can get, since you and the family will be able to enjoy similar comforts (TV, air conditioning, refrigerator, etc.) that you did in your old house.
However, for those who are on a budget, temporary apartment housing is a viable alternative. Another reason for taking this option would be if you anticipate not being able to move into your new permanent residence for a month or even longer. You may feel a little cramped, especially if you have a big family, but you'll be comfortable enough.
Temporary housing won't allow you to have a settled, "at home" feel, but it will spare you from having to live in a domestic jungle while your new house is still not fixed. You and the kids will be able to function, at least.
