Regular readers probably know the quest for sorting out a child filled home is never-ending and even if/when they leave home, we’ll probably be stuck as some sort of free storage site for them for years afterwards.
Anyway, having now successfully moved the kids back into their playroom that we created when we had the garage converted, we’re now looking at making it a more efficient use of space for them. We have already got rid of the huge storage unit that made a fairly narrow room more like a corridor and now we’re looking at the sofa bed.
