After 8 years, adding 2 little people and a families worth of stuff those perks have started to wear off.
I have stretched my vertical space to lengths that would make Martha Stewart jealously proud.
I have been savvy with processions/furniture and most have a dual purpose, like our ottoman that also houses the vacuum (because there are no closets in this place).
But all that has started to change.
Startin with a false ceiling we had put in.
Now we'll have 2 bedrooms upstairs, one for each girl.
I can't tell you how excited they are.
This is the right time too, they are definitely needing their own space.
What!!?? no more losing heat to a 25 foot open dead space??
I have never been happier with a decision in this place.
Now we have a new room.
We painted all the walls white, getting rid of the hideous orange toned stain and have put in pocket lights every 3 feet downstairs, which will brighten up the dark gloominess of a log home.
I feel like we've stepped into the 20th century.
What a difference a day and a half makes.
Feels like we're moving up!!
