So, we're preparing to add our #5 to our very small home (1200 sq feet). We don't have the option to move right now, so this is fine (IMO, people have been having lots of kids in small houses forever, right?), I just need to strategize. We have three *small* bedrooms, one where the boys sleep (DD is in with us still), and one is essentially a co-sleeping overflow room (DH goes in there with DS3, or I go in there with the baby, or by myself, or whatever- cosleepers, you understand, right?)
I'm considering having DH build triple bunks + a trundle so we can keep all the kids in one room (so as to hold onto my beloved overflow/guest room/nursery. We also have a corner of our old, unfinished basement sectioned off into a playroom, which I'm hoping to fix up & expand.
Anyone else making space in tight quarters? I'm hoping others have some ideas.
