It really was a problem that we were trying our best to figure out.
But the answers were challenging.
The fact is, we had one more kid than we have bedrooms in our home. That so wasn’t the plan when we bought that house. Yet, we were surprised with our youngest son. That happens in life. Still, we bough this house, replaced the HVAC unit and renovated the kitchen thinking that we’d be here til the kids were out of the house. And we love this house. But the brothers sharing a room just wasn’t working. Honestly, it really isn’t on the kids. They did the best they could to make those living arrangements work. Yet, my oldest son sticks to hitting the books inside the air conditioning as he is passionate about his education and getting into a good school. And that is so fine with me because it looks like he’ll get a full ride to college and that is a dream come true for us. But that left the youngest one with nowhere he could just be. Finally, we decided that moving was out of the question so we added a master bedroom suite. It’s awesome and even came with its own ductless heat pump. That room is like being on vacation every, single day. We even have our own bathroom and it has a space heater to warm things up on those cold winter mornings. There is the added bonus of all the value that this new room with it’s own quality heating and air adds to our home.
