This is our upstairs. Our group home gals don't come up here. We can't "store" things in their areas downstairs. We store things in the basement for all of us. And our things are upstairs.
(Above) The playroom is precious Samson's bedroom. It is about 10' x 10'. It was a kitchen once when our house was a duplex. The wood on the left is Samson's bunk bed. He sleeps alone. The bottom bunk stores learning toys and PT/OT stuff for now.
Straight ahead is Isaiah's table for home school.
This was a living room when our house was a duplex!
Or they open the door often to check the weather. We just had 10" of snow and everybody had to open the door multiple times to watch the snow!
Stuff on the right is homeschool. A pink toy box to the left. :o)
More homeschool books. If you go out the doorway there is the door to the bathroom. It's a long walk for me from our room to the bathroom! :o(
This was our bedroom before we built the big- bedroom/familyroom.
In the blog picture of our house up top, the top 3 windows are over Lysa's bed. In the front of the house!
Here is Lysa's bed again to the right. There is a trundle bed under Lysa's bed. Kitty sleeps on the top bunk. Faith sleeps on the bottom bunk. Yes that's my lovely arm and leg directing Tom's magnificent picture taking! LOL!
I know it may look "crowded" in the pictures. But there is plenty of space to walk and move, do school work, play, and watch TV upstairs. It's nice for us to have family time upstairs. Alot of my knick knacks I thought the kids would take as they left home. But no takers so far. They do take my extra household stuff!
I wanted to show how we make room for 14 of us in a house that is much smaller than most houses. If we can do it- you can do it!
We thank God for this house! :o)
