Figure out Alternative Accommodations

If you are planning an extensive endeavor, your family may need to live somewhere else for a while.  Make sure you have somewhere else to go before the sledgehammers start flying.

Consider Doing a Little Bit at a Time

Depending on various factors, you may need to consider doing your project in phases.  If you have to spread out the work, have a plan in place.  Knowing when things are going to happen will make it easier to have the patience needed to make a long-term project happen.
