Family room/Home school room.

Today we cleaned out the room that will become our home school/family room.

We are still trying to work out what we are going to do in there to have it all set up. There are lots of different options which is good but makes it harder to agree on.

Here are some photos to show you what we have at the moment.


This is the kitchen wall. The door way is into a little alcove area that has a bedroom, bathroom and the end room off it.

Here is the alcove area. It has a cupboard in it as well as the three doorways.


Here is the entrance to our old children's bathroom. It is a pretty awful bathroom and really small. Just to the left of the door is a bath with a shower over it.


The end room. This is looking into the room as you enter from the alcove area. The wall needs a lot of work. We pulled kitchen cupboards and tiles off there.

This is looking back from the far wall in the end room.

I really want to open up the room to come off the kitchen so that means knocking the bathroom out.

On the kitchen wall that is in the first picture, I want to have double opening doors where the kitchen cabinet is now. This will make the room huge but I want it to be big so that we can store all our home schooling gear and fit a nice size table for the children to work at. We also want a lounge area and TV and video area for the children to watch videos on.

The other option we are mulling over is changing the bathroom into a laundry.

I really like the open plan better than a laundry in the middle. Steve prefers the laundry. Hopefully we can work out a good plan that we are both really happy with and makes our house.

Any suggestions you may have are really welcome.

Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research.
