Our kids are going on 8 and 6 and they seem happy in this house. They share the loft for sleeping and toy storage, and there are thousands of acres to explore. Still, we are keenly aware of our limited circumstances. We all work to respect the need for personal space, but eventually Isaiah isn’t going to want to share a room with his sister anymore. We have plans to create a bedroom out of the back deck, and contractor friends say we could easily and inexpensively add on to the side of the house as well. Another possibility is outbuildings. So we have options.
