Of course we should just forget about the folks that work the night shift, they should have no right to exist.
I worked shift work for 30 years. You learn to deal with it. Blackout curtains fan running to mask noise. Still doesn't mater when working shift if people start work at 6 or 8am.

I wonder how many people that complain about noise have ever worked outside in the heat or have empathy for those that do.

Wal*Mart has pretty effective white noise machines for less than $20 that have multiple natural sounds that you can pick from.
Never buy one of the first houses in a neighborhood. They tend to build every other lot at first so it looks so grand. Then they plop one down right next door.
You need to get another RV so you can get away when you want to.

My own sister and BIL who is having a new house built next door to their home has had to put up with constant noise that she is not happy about as well.

Just remember when you had your new house built the noise probably inconvenienced other neighbors. While no one enjoys living in construction zone it sometimes is a necessity.

Not sure, but I think the reason for building here and skipping a lot building another is parking. Each hand working on the house must drive their own pickup to the job. I once had a job grading yards, paying a couple of trucks over a dollar a minute to haul dirt in. I had one white hat that would park in the way "I just need to..." After I decided he had wasted enough of my time I had a driver unload right behind his pickup, and told the truck to start on the yard down the street. About 3 times of running to get out of the way of the Bobcat he decided to wait for me to do my job. Later that day the owner on the company he worked for, and I was contracted to, was just starting to eat the donkey in my face, when the boy came over his radio to report the operator digging basements had pushed his pickup onto a pile of waste. Said "Guess I'm not the only one he gets in the way of, You want this work done before the rain, or do you want me to load my ship?"

Worked rotating 12 hr shifts.....daytime activities were MY issue to resolve NOT those folks going about normal life.


AS for 'noise restrictions/limitations'...YES there are Gov Regs in place
Guideline...residential construction


In general:
Hours where construction equipment noise is prohibited (noise may still be unreasonable outside of these times):

8 pm - 7 am Monday to Friday
8 pm - 9 am Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.


Is it time for your medication or mine?

Didn't say I wasn't. Was just a curiosity question.

I wonder how many people that complain about noise have ever worked outside in the heat or have empathy for those that do.

Wasn't complaining. Again, just asking. I have BIG empathy for those who work in adverse weather conditions-I couldn't do it.

Someday a thread like this will be answered without the OP being criticized. I am just surprised by the number that said 6:00 was acceptable. Guess it's a bunch of early birds on here! I am a very light sleeper and some times I don't fall asleep until 2 or 3 a.m. which makes a 6 a.m. start very disruptive, especially if I don't need to get up. I DO get it especially in climates where the heat gets unbearable by 10 a.m. Ear plugs maybe?

I can't recall for sure, but I think our city regs indicate work crews have to start after 8 am, no earlier and have to finish by 11 pm, no later. Mostly they;re finished by 5-6 pm anyways.

It can get very cold here...-30 or colder not unusual ...and very hot...90 above. I know in southern areas in the states 90 above isn't as hot as they get.

Did not mean to sound harsh. I'm a light sleeper as well. I'm a early bird for sure, year's of getting up at 4:45 to go to work for day shift. Been retired for a few years and still can't sleep in.

The best thing is to check your town ordinance for times. Other times people suggest may not be pertinent to your area.

Being at the far west side of a time zone has its benefits: there's a point where "too early" is also "too dark". We live on a big lake on a private street - one would think that noise early morning wouldn't be an issue - but you can't believe how much noise 50 Bass Boats can make at 6 AM when taking off for a tournament....LOL!!!! (Fortunately they are all fishing quietly within minutes; and I can sometimes fall back asleep again)

I'm another light sleeper who gets by with a sound-masking machine. And as a rule, most of our neighbors wait until 8 am or so before mowing/firing up the motorcycle, etc
