The house will be here any day now!! We can't wait! The floor plan has finally been settled on, and if all goes like we plan we will have plenty of storage. I really wanted a wet room, but we won't have any where to get dressed and keep our clothes dry. Since our bathroom ceiling will be lower than normal we have decided to go with a schluter (I hope I spelled that correctly) shower kit. Since we will be working on a tight budget. This will give us time to save up for tile, still be able to shower, and not have to worry about finding a shower stall to fit our low ceiling; we just install the schluter to the ceiling, an cut the extra off. We will be going with stairs and not ladders, for the lofts. Tight, small, and narrow stairs, but stairs none the less. We will be utilizing the space under the stairs as extra storage, shelves, and cupboards. Washer and drier will be outside, behind the house in a add on.
Today we have started down sizing our belongings. We are keeping only half of our stuff. Half of our clothing, half of my books (I have two huge book cases full), half our dishes, half of the kids toys, etc., etc., etc. Pretty much, if we haven't used it in the last 30 days, we don't need it. You would be amazed at how much stuff has gone in the recycle, donation and the "why do I even have that?" piles!! My DVD collection will not be downsized however. I love cheesy B-rated horror!!!
