If there is construction work being done near your apartment, you already know what a nightmare that situation can be. Particularly if is being done early in the morning, or if you have children and cannot get them to nap throughout the day. If you are living in such a situation, here are a few tips for surviving a construction area.
Know the rules: every city has a various set of regulations for construction crews working in residential area. The most common of which is work cannot be done before 7am and after 5pm. Visit your local city has and find out other regulations.
Create a quiet room: sometimes construction work follows every regulation in the book, but the noise is still unbearable. If that is the case, try to create a quiet room by hanging heavy curtains, or cover your window with a foam bed topper—anything to reduce the noise.
