Getting Ready

Bethany and Kailey are both downsizing. Kailey's current room is the biggest. We're going to use her room for our adopted children. Kailey will be moved to Bethany's room (smaller) and Bethany will be moved to the office (smaller yet) on the lower level. In other words, Kailey is moving from the rainforest to the island, Bethany's moving from the island to the office.

Bethany has taken the lead on the decorating and preparation. She picked out the paint color scheme and we began painting last week.

The biggest challenge with Bethany's new room is the layout. It's not significantly smaller than her current room - the space is just not as user-friendly. Every wall has something to interfere. This room has four doors(closet, exterior, interior, furnace room) plus a built-in cabinet in the corner with the water and gas meter. There's only one good corner to put a bed - but then there's no good place for anything else (dresser, desk, etc.).

We talked a long time about how to overcome these challenges. Saturday Bethany and I built a custom bed to solve the problem. A desk will go underneath.
