I have always felt that it is important for the kids to have their own private space. I know that I need to get away sometimes and just have time to think or read or stare at the wall without someone coming in and interrupting. My kids still don't understand this yet, but that is a story for another time.
We have been very blessed this last year and are able to build on to our house. We are having a game room, master bedroom and bath added. Things finally got started a week ago and I thought I would share pictures along the way.
This is the back of the house before we started.
Tearing down the back porch. Sorry Dad!
