My place is quite small.. but huge compared to where we just moved from.. Its about 1200sqft

It is 3 bed 2 bath.

My babies room is the most cluttered.. but he has so much medical equipment its hard to organize it in his room because the way the plug ins are positioned. Certain things have to be plugged directly into the wall and this was the only set-up I could come up with

Here is a video (very unsteady hand .. sorry)..

It is minus one bedroom.. The closed door walking into my room is the bathroom. It starts out at the front door looking into the kitchen.. all of the toys are ds's toys that would not fit into the doors by the fireplace and that is "supposed" to be the dining room.. but no table because last place was too small for a table..

And another video of the babies room walking from my room... (Thats his nurse)

http://youtube.com/watch?v=j1Ak98tR7tA

It is at least 2.5 times bigger than his old room. We could only literally sit 2 adults and the baby on the floor at a time and it was very uncomfortable.. but now we can fit about 5 comfortably.

This is his old room (before he moved in)

There was about 2 more feet to the right of the open closet door and that was all..

Our style is definitely eclectic and we have a love for antiques. We moved from a 200 year old house, to this new timber frame, solar home built in 2000. So that's quite a difference!

We went from 3,500 sq. ft. to about 1,600 sq. ft. We are having a MAJOR yardsale next weekend and I am constantly going through things to give away or sell. It hasn't been hard downsizing and I find the challenge fun and exciting! The bedroom situation is challenging sometimes. I should post pictures of our other house we moved from: 12 rooms...10 fireplaces...5 bedrooms, 3 baths, huge pantry, storage everywhere, etc. If I get a chance I will put them on flickr if anyone is interested.

I love the fact that dh and I are always together whenever we are both upstairs. Company is fun because we all gather in the living room or kitchen area, but it is such a wide open space that people can be anywhere and we can still chat.

I can see dd wherever I am and I can't lose her like I could've in our other place

We do not want to live in a house that is void of objects and "clutter" because that is part of who we are. We like to collect things from our adventures together and display them in our home. A lot of our things are family pieces we have inherited. My dh had a great aunt who traveled the world and collected antiques from all over. We have a lot of her things.

It's been fun downsizing, and although challenging sometimes, we enjoy it! We do plan on putting a dormer on back of the house (we live in a saltbox) to add about 6 feet onto the kitchen, dining room, pantry and dd's room (where the daybed is) so we can have windows along that side of the house. We want to let more light in to avoid using lights during the day.

Our next plan is to expand the floor of the loft out a bit to move our four poster bed up there (it currently won't fit) and a dresser. Then the purple bedroom (won't be purple much longer!!) will be a sewing room/office/playroom. Right now there is no place for dd's toys.

Gotta go...dd is fussy today
I would LOVE to see pictures of the old place as a comparison, I would also love to see pictures of the exterior of your new place. IT's just so beautiful on the inside!

talk to me about the "rainbox room" -- did you build it? did you buy it? I want one for a little puppet theater/dress up room/playspace for my kids rooms.

The rainbow room you asked about is called the camp and the pattern and directions for making one are in the book A Children's Year. I've also seen them on ebay from time to time. Good Luck!
