When I married my husband we both accepted our children from othr relationships - I have a 6 year old daughter, and 3 year old son and he has a 12 year old son who stays with us every other weekend, plus a few days here and there ( we let him stay whenever he wants,it just depends when his mom lets him) ....
So we bought a new house, it is a 3 bedoom, 2 bath, plus has a huge den... Since my kids live here 24/7 , they do have their own rooms, and we bought a big pull out couch and dresser to keep in the den ( which when SS is not here, itis the playroom) ...
I LOVE my SS, and when we were looking for houses we did want a 4 bedroom, but since we live in a small area, we literaly found NO 4 bedrooms homes....
I dont let the younger kids in the playroom while he is here, unless he wants them in there HE says he has NO problem at all staying in there...
BUT his mother does.... she tells my husband that it is unfair, that she can take him to court over this and that my children should share a room, so he can have his own .............
ALSO...really the only thing he does in there is sleep, or occasionally watch tv or play a video game, he is usually hanging out with us, or outside with his dad ...

I've seen judges say that a child has to have an actual bed to sleep in, but not a room of their own. Why not get a day bed or a bunk bed with a couch underneath for the playroom... that my solve the problem.
