Moving in together...

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

BF and I have decided to rent a home together with our children.  His 3 and my 2.  Mine will live with us full time while his will be with us about 8 days/month.  So far we have only found an affordable 3 bedroom. Was hoping for at least a 4 bedroom.

How do we set up bedrooms/kid space? Do the kids who are only here part time deserve as much space and consideration as the full time kids?

G 8                      B 7

G 6                      B 5

B 3

BF wants to have a boys room and a girls room. I get that and it makes sense. But thats a whole space that for the majority of time won't get used at all. Seems like a waste.

Suggestions? Ideas?

That doesn't sound to crazy to me...and maybe a bunk bed or trundle bed boys room? Or if there is a place you can store a cot to pull out when the 3 yr old comes over?

The only reason I suggest boy and girl rooms though is if this is long term then as then kids get older boys and girls should def have their own room.

The master bedroom is quite large and very nice. I thought about letting the boys have that room so they could have more space. The girls would take the smallest room and BF and I the middle sized room.  BF thinks I'm crazy to give up the master.

Quoting Anonymous:

If its 3 bedrooms I honestly don't see a problem with a boys and girls room or putting the part timers in one room and the full timers in their own room in less you all can find a 4 bedroom or are willing to give up your room.
