I though I’d ask you guys for some tips or experiences…
My SO, twin brother and I have been given a wonderful opportunity to buy a house (well, a farm actually) and make it into something of our own (some background: my twin brother bought one part of it a while ago as a separate living space, but now the whole building and surrounding property is for sale). We’d share the courtyard etc. with my brother, and maybe one day his partner and/or children if he has them, but each have our own house. It’s at a price we can afford, especially the three of us together, and we’d have much more space for our four sons inside and outside. And if one day we decide our family isn’t complete yet we’d have plenty of space.
Anyway, the thing is… while you can definitely live in it (there’s heating, running/warm water, kitchen and bathroom are usable but need replacing) there’s some remodeling that needs to be done. And I’m a bit nervous about doing this with four small children around, especially with the new born twins. But I don’t want to miss the opportunity. So do you guys have any tips for remodeling with small children around, any experience?
I’ve never done this kind of thing before, with or without children around.
