How do you deal with space in the home with 4 or more children. We have 4 and stay in a 3 bdrm home over 40 yrs old.Two girls stay in a room, two boys stay in a room. It works out great. When my SD comes to visit, we have a blowup mattress or they "camp out" on the floor and talk all night. With nbr 5 coming, I am wondering what our options are.
The house is in need of major renovations from a new roof, foundation uneven,m rewiring, water damage and just general wear and tear. We will need to add on a room and bathroom soon. We were given an estimate of $3500 to redo the kitchen floor and adjust the house from shifting. It seems ridiculous.
I asked around to people who had rooms added on and renovations done and was told its cheaper or the same price to get a new home with everything you want. We have 2 years left to pay on the house and I really dont want to get a new home and new mortgage but I have lived here all my life and desperately want to move and expose my children to more cultural and educational experiences. The contract states we cannot sell the house...renters are an option..
what do you guys do with the birth of each new child?
