Moving Day! Part 1

On the 4th of July our Son in Love Dan and his beautiful wife Grace (our daughter :o) came over with the boy's new bunks.
The bunks Dan made for me to my measurements.
Above we are clearing out and moving furniture from where the old bunks were. Walls were washed from 5 years worth of fingerprints!

Lots of vacuuming and everything moved to make space for constructing!!
This is one end of the room.

                            This is the other end of the room.

This is the middle of the room where the bunks will go side by side.

My sweet LOVE Faith helping vacuum. I can get nothing done without her! Oh the JOY she brings us! (This is Isaiah's new room she's vacuuming)

My sweet surprise gift from God Isaiah vacuuming. He shared this room for 5 years, first with 4 brothers, then with 3 brothers.
Now this room will sleep 6 brothers! With lots of play room!

Moses tries out his bunk without a mattress! He loves it!

 Coming into the bedroom here. The first triple bunk to the left- Noah on the bottom, Moses in the middle, Samson on top. Straight ahead to the right is Samson's things. He had them in this room the last 5 years but his bed was in another room. He is happy to be closer to his stuff!

 Side by side, two triple bunks.
We did have to add a few pieces of paneling on one side of each bunk where a wall used to "close" that side off. The 5 little boys are not comfortable with open spaces. Their bunks used to have one side enclosed by a wall. And they liked the ends of their beds closed off as well. Here one end is closed by the wall, one end open to climb up. The top bunk on the right now has a "tent" top Tom added for Julius. Julius loves it! It's his little hide away!

                        This end of the room completed.

 The wall opposite the beds. Shelves with school work. Nothing decorated yet. I am going to re-paint walls this Fall first. (after our vacation)

If anybody wondered, G and CC had their own room, our spare room on the main floor. They never had to share a room or come into our boy's bedrooms. Our boys need their privacy :o) And space away from boys who could hurt them. After time G and CC learned to be nice to our boys so we were blessed that their hearts became protective towards Mercy and the boys.

The picture above is how G liked to keep his room! Kids with Autism are very particular, and like the control of their things. In his own room G could do that.

Isaiah now has a room to himself. I didn't get photos yet, his new loft bed was set up yesterday..

This house that we have lived in for 39 years, this house the Lord blessed us with, has always been the perfect house for every season of children we have raised. We THANK God and PRAISE God! We have never needed to move because there was not enough room. This "house" has always had the space we needed, for the work God asked us to do. We are completely, and utterly humbled by God's goodness! PRAISE God!! Our cup overflows! THANK YOU God!

  1. It all looks wonderful and is coming along nicely! What blessings bunk beds are. They free up so much floor space. We have triple bunks on two of our children's rooms! Your Son-in-love did a wonderful job! Blessings!
