We are expecting our fifth baby this summer and recently moved to California where rent is higher, and we had to get a smaller space. It’s safe to say we are running out of room!
For the foreseeable future, we’re living in a three bedroom, 900-square-foot house. The kitchen has only three upper cabinets, three drawers, two lower cabinets, and no pantry. The bedrooms are small and the closets are barely big enough for me to fit in, so clothing storage is an issue — there is no linen closet or storage of any kind.
I’ve seen what Ariel did with her walk-in closet nursery and Offbeat Home’s post about fitting a family of four into a 500 square foot apartment. Fucking impressive — I would love to see more ideas like that. I’m also interested in advice about small space storage and tips for getting kids into the idea of sharing rooms.
Tell me: how can we make our small space work for five kids and two adults?
