Our house is 1,024 square feet. With the 8 different areas and rooms it's divided into-- the rooms of our house are pretty small.
Because of this, all our furniture is all on the diminutive side. We have "love seats" instead of couches, Jeremy and I share a double bed (Yes, a double. Quite comfortably actually.) and our dining table that we bought from a President's Day Sale (because if there was any holiday that we were planning our wedding weekend to coincide with it would be the one honoring our late honorable presidents) is a mere 2-1/2 by 4 feet.
This furniture has all worked out wonderfully for us because we lived in apartments before this house and we've always needed to maximize limited space. With that thought in mind we finally decided --in upgrading Owen's sleeping arrangements-- to go with a nice set of twin bunk beds.
Today was delivery day and they called this morning to let us know that the headboard of the bottom bunk arrived damaged, but they could still deliver the top bunk if we wanted. Since we only plan on using one bunk for the next year or so anyway we told them to go ahead and deliver the lone bunk.
The workmen arrived and set it up:
TAKE IT BACK!!
It takes up the entire bedroom! And it doesn't even have the bottom bunk yet! I'm sure Owen can continue sleeping on a crib mattress until we can afford a bigger house. In 3 years. . . maybe 5?
He'll only be 10. . .
