The contractor set up a temporary stove top and we used the laundry room sink for dishes. It's low and it was a bear standing at it. Even with the temporary setup, we still ate at the taco truck more often than I care to admit.
The plastic billowing on the ceiling was to keep dust and debris from falling everywhere while the hardwood floors were being redone above us.
It wasn't the most comfortable, but at least we didn't have to move out while all this was being done.
