View Full Version : Is a 2 bedroom home too small?
well as you know.... i am in desperate need of finding a home, as i have to move in a little over a week....
I have found a private rental... which is only a 2 bedroom home :o
and im currently in a 4 bedroom home... Do you think its cruel to move into something that size with 3 kids :confused:
nope jem, i think its ok, are the bedrooms big;)
Not at all Jem. Any house can be made a comfortable home. When I was young my parents hit a rough patch and the five of us (parents & 3 kids) lived in a 2 roomed house. One bedroom with an ensuite and a lounge area with a small kitchenette. It was a tough time for my folks but it never bothered us kids. In fact I would even go so far as to say it was one of the most fun times I remember.
We bought a two-bedroom house and the previous owners had three children. The three kids shared a bedroom (which was a decent size) and had all of their toys and playthings in the lounge in a big tub. The house didn't seem cramped or anything, and the kids were just running around (aged about 6, 4 and 2) happily.
I don't think it's mean at all. And as for cleaning, yes, it's a dream!!!
We are in a two bedroom home, but one of the rooms is an office as DP works from home. So the three of us are in the bedroom. We actually find it a little too cosy, we have a dog as well and he lives in our courtyard... I guess because we are both at home all day, the house is really lived in!
But I do agree with everyone, you make do with what you have, and kids couldn't care less as long as they are having fun.
I think it would be fine Jem :) Long as the bedrooms are an ok size i would go for it :)
Bedrooms are only really for sleeping (and other adult things:o ). We have a two bedroom house and 2 children and haven't had any issues. Eventually I want a bigger house (I don't have an indoor laundry:( ), but at this point our house is great for our needs. We spend a lot of time outside (which is great for the kids) and use our sunroom for the kids stuff.:)
2 beds will be ok!!! :) Can you sign a short term lease incase you find something bigger soon..... :o
The 2 boys could go together & you could share with Amber... maybe.. whatever work for you though.
I say go for it!!
My Dad grew up in a 2 bedroom house & he had 5 sisters!! :eek: :laughing:
Good luck chicky babe!! xxoo
I think you will be fine till the kiddies get older....and besides its Aussie tradition for kids to share/bunk bed a room ;)
I dont think so. We have just moved into a two bedroom place, which is okay, its just me, DH and DS.
but you can always make it work, with bunks, or something like that.
well i had a look at the place, and it pretty good :thumbsup:
So im one of 3 who want it and i will find out next tuesday at the latest
Good luck Jem!! :fingerscrossed:
If we have to move we would have to move into a bigger place 4br.
It isn't big enough here- I hate it and we have a bunk
We are desperate for storage ideas
Good luck jem, i hope you get it!:fingerscrossed:
We live in a small 2 br house and we are just managing! but I have a big boofer of a DH, so I think you guys will be fine.
I personally WOULD NOT DO IT.:no:
Hubby and i currently live in a BIG 2 bedroom unit, and we want once i fall pregnant or right after bub is born. I want space but maybe thats just me.
If will be a BIG change for you and you will probably be in each others space all the time.
But then again you might save some $$ whilst your there
I wouldn't do it. Having 3 kids in a 3 bedroom house, we find it REALLY cramped. If they had no toys, it would be fine. They don't have all that many toys, but there is no room in their bedrooms for the toy boxes. And if they are in there playing, they end up fighting because they are invading each others space.
After the Navy our Family of 4 kids and my nana lived in a 2 bedroom house with a sleepout (for all the kids) outside toliet and a combustion stove. It was good we had a ball!
As long as your together and can afford it kids dont care really bedrooms are only for sleeping.
