My house is perfect for one couple & two kids… Sadly my partner & I have filled the rooms to the max! My friend and I don’t share a room since my great friend and I aren’t compatible.
My partner also needs a family room & my great friend and I have two children… The math doesn’t add up, however an addition was entirely necessary in order to make everyone comfortable.
My partner wasn’t pleased about doing this update. My friend and I had to upgrade the size of our Heating & A/C equipment! I had to put in a second bathroom & change the septic system. Another change was the electrical. My friend and I needed to upgrade our panel to accommodate the extra square footage & lights. The electrical panel upgrade was severely extravagant but worth it. I didn’t realize how gross & old the previous panel was. It also wasn’t in a great spot, but now it is hidden behind a door, not full to the max, & current looking. My friend and I also have recessed lighting in all our current rooms & it looks so classy. My partner & I will be paying for our current addition for a long time, but it was worth it. I appreciate that my house now can accommodate all our needs. It was absolutely important to me that our kids get their own bedrooms as well. I feel they shouldn’t have to share if my partner & I aren’t willing to. The office couldn’t have been nixed either since my partner is in there most of his day. Thankfully an electrical panel upgrade & recessed lighting was a straightforward repair for additions in homes.
