How do you manage contractors in the house during a remodel?

2 months ago

We‘re scheduled to start our kitchen remodel next week (!) and have never done anything like this before. Is it generally expected that I’m home when the crew is in the house? (I work from home so this is somewhat feasible.) Or do I give them a key? Or just let them in and then disappear? It seems uncomfortable to have people in the house when I’m not there, but is this generally how it works? I know I shouldn’t watch their every move, right? Hoping for some helpful guidance as far as how present to be to create a good environment for them and me :)
