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