I am having my entire site redone. While it is being worked on how do I let visitors to my site be aware that it is under renovation and not taken down completely?

You can also unpublish from the file manager. Click on your site name on the top right of the page editor.
or - 
You can create a text box: "Under Construction" or whatever you want to use to identify your site's condition. Expand the text box to cover your menus, add a color background to hide the contents, use text centering, borders and padding to create a nice presentation. The same thing can be accomplished using any image. Be creative. Covering the menus will prevent access to other pages without having to change the status of your site. After, save and publish. Using this alternate method, you can work on your site by lifting the cover and insert images, text etc. You can Save your work without changing the published presentation. When you're ready, remove the facade save and publish.

Hi Niel, on your index page just state that your website is being renovated and give an estimate when the renovation will be completed. The page that will be the new index page save it as index1.Then when you are finished renovating delete the index page and save the page that has been named index1 as the index page. No one will see your website until it is finished.
