Well, obviously that wouldn't work for you unless you were rich like Mr. Burns.

Well, we're not Mr. Burns, but all of our kids have their own spaces, not their own rooms, but private places for themselves.

My oldest boy is 12, he has his own room alone.

My two younger boys share a room (7 and 5)

My daughter has her own room (not that she's ever in it!) almost 3.

My two stepdaughters share a room (12 year old twins).

My youngest stepson (not really my stepson because DH is not his dad, his dad is the new husband of DH's exwife, but we have him almost as much as the other kids) is 2, he "shares" my youngest daughter's room.

We'll have to reconfigure when the littles get bigger, at that point we'll probably turn one of the offices into a bedroom (not mine! ) -- it'll only be for a few years, since DS1 and SD1&2 will be off at college when the littles are 8 and 9.

Needing so much room limited our housing options, that's for sure!

Sounds like you've done very well. Those who are old enough to need their own space get it, twins (who are close anyway) get to share and everyone is happy. Bravo.

Well, I am bio-mom to all three of our kids. DH is the father of our 5-year-old son and baby-to-be. DD, 19 months, has a different father. (She was conceived when DH & I were divorced. We reunited when she was 3 weeks old.)

DD has her own room currently but will soon be sharing with her baby (half)brother. This is not because she's the "stepkid" (to my DH) but because they will be so close in age.

All three kids are treated completely equally in our house, by all parties.

Our baby will share our room until we move or the older ones grow up and move out or something. We will co sleep for the first year or two then I plan to put up one of those screen things in a section of our room for a toddler bed and dresser. Although a court order for a seperate bdroom seems a little extereme.

I totally agree with this.
We only have a 2 bedroom home.
My husband, A, S and I cosleep in our room.
Lack of bedrooms didn't stop us from having 2nd daughter (neither did birth control ).
Our bedroom is tiny, so we only have our bed, the crib (pressed up against side of bed and wall), a changing table, and dresser in there with little to no walking space.
Stepson J's bedroom has his bed, our 2nd computer, his toys, his dresser, dresser for A and S, dog's kennel, cat's beds, A and S's extra toys.
It is a multi-purpose room since it's twice as big as our bedroom.
It has two doors and J has all the privacy he wants because A and S don't play in there.
It is J's sanctuary.
A and S play in living room where I can constantly supervise them.
I only keep some of their toys in here, and keep the extras in J's room (toy rotation and clutter reduction).
