IMHO, you'd be nuts to live aboard during the refit. Dirt, dust, fumes, lights get disconected, water may or may not work, tools are everywhere, parts of the boat removed to do the work are everywhere....it's not a pretty sight. The fact that all this is happening in a very small space compounds the problem.
If you have a place within the boat to retreat that can be kept clean and you have access to shore facilities (head / shower / food), and if you don't mind roughing it.....it's possible. I lived that way for two weeks in a yard. It wasn't much fun. And I should add... I didn't have the my first mate with me. My guess is most women don't like living in a workshop.
