We're getting all rooms in the the house done up in the next few months and are wondering what to do with the piano.
We could cover it in something and hope the builders don't use it for their canteen, or to stand on while painting the ceiling.
The issue is that the builders will be generating a load of dust as the floors are removed, concrete poured, walls gouged out, walls plastered, etc . . . over the next few months so even if they don't damage it as above, I don't think the general atmopsphere will be good for it..
Or we could move it into storage. Which will not be fun - it's hard enough to move around the house let alone get it into a van.
I'm just wondering whether anyone has any advice ? Would we be mad to leave it in the house with the builders ? Should we hire piano movers ? Is it wise to even consider lifting/moving it ourselves ?
