We keep switching bedrooms at our house.  

Prior to each previous "last" child we had a plan. 

We moved people and things worked...until the next one came along.
(Is it a bad sign when all the bedrooms we've remodeled since we moved here have had at least 3 different colors?)

BUT this is it - the LAST move.

I have dibs on the first available room for my sewing stuff!

The biggest room will be getting the three boys.
Megan has her own space.
The little girls share a bigger room.
And Kenton and I are squashed into a smaller room, which only works because we are pretty much only there to sleep.

My parents came to help.
(I appreciate ALL their hard work on our behalf!)

This part of the house has no studs, only back to back boards.  The men decided it was easiest to stud over the existing wallboard, add electrical and insulation, and sheetrock over that.  The ceiling needed to come down because there wasn't much insulation to prevent the heat from escaping through the attic.

The upstairs is a bit goofy.  There are 3 hallways.  Thankfully, my parents agreed that the last two hallways should be completed now as well!  Woohoo!  This means the upstairs will be mostly done.  

This hallway led to a window.  I appreciated the light, but we really need storage more than light.  This hallway will become a closet!   Woohoo, again!  
Some of this still has the old lathe and plaster...nasty job!

This will be SO NICE to have done.
Especially since 4 kids are sharing a room with bunk beds, a double bed, 3 dressers, and a bookshelf.  Mom and Dad are sleeping in Carl and Martha's camper.

If you decide this is a good time to stop by, we're going to put you to work.  :)


  1. Fun times! I know you'll be so thrilled to have it done but I don't envy the messy house. It'll be worth it.

  2. The camper is finally getting use! Yay! :) This looks like it will be great when it's done.
