Embiggen it!

Ok, we have officially reached capacity here. And then some. In fact, I am working on a new 101 list, and one of the things on it is too enlarge this house or move. Putting all four girls in one room worked in theory, because it is a large room. However, the babies are constantly in the big girls’ stuff and it is causing a whole lot of conflict. And some ill will, too. I don’t want the big girls resenting their sisters, so I am looking at house plans.

I quite sure that we could not move for less than 250K, and if you’ve read a word I have written lately, you know that isn’t even an option. Besides, I love, love, love my kitchen, and not even country house plans show kitchens this big and well laid out. I told my friend today that the first thing I saw when I walked in this house for the first time was that kitchen, and I knew when I stepped in it that this was the house for me.

I am liking some of the log home floor plans, particularly the usable loft sleeping areas. Even If I could figure out a way to incorporate those into our current house, it would effectively DOUBLE our square footage. Seriously, beds take up a LOT of room that could otherwise be occupied by sprawled out bodies crowded around toys and games, and I really want the kids to be able to do something inside besides watch tv. Right now, we can all gather at the table, and that is about it.

And since I am posting about embiggening my home, tell me some of your best space saving tips. Here’s one more of mine. Get the biggest set of bedrisers at Wal-Mart.com. Don’t get the ones from the store, they aren’t as tall. Then you can fit bins of craft supplies under your bed ;)
