Put 2 kids in each bedroom. If 3 are the same sex get a bunk and a twin for the 3 and the one of a sex gets their own room. If there is a hall closet the one of the three gets it. Make sure everyone knows when someone is going to take a shower. Because there are so many kids and only one bathroom, baths need to be taken the night before. They can dampen the hair in the am if they need to.
We had a family of 8 in a 4 bedroom. The 2 boys shared a room, the oldest & youngest girls shared a room (15 & 1) because the other 2 girls wouldn't leave the baby alone. The baby was moved in with the oldest when she began to sleep thru the night. I tried to make sure that each kid had their own space in the rooms. The 2 middle girls got a fairly big room and all the toys were in there so the youngest 4 could have a play area without getting into the oldest ones things. It worked out well for us. When we moved into a 5 bedroom it was strange to have the extra room. So we were opposite of you.
only having one bathroom is going to be hard..:(
Craigslist had sheds cheap sometimes for seasonal stuff
Quoting Anonymous:Loft beds! That way they can have the floor space...
