I have made references to the second floor of our house being strangely laid out, but there is just no way to do that justice through description - so I made this not-at-all-to-scale floorplan in Google Sketch-Up.
I want to run something past you guys, and see if it makes sense to anyone outside of my brain. As you can see in our room, we have a very small closet (that is doorless to boot), but Luke's room has a very large closet. Now, we actually have our clothes in his closet at the moment, but I was thinking...
WHAT IF I switch out the playroom with Luke's closet? That way our clothes would be accessible to us at all times, and the toys would be accessible through his room only. The con that I see immediately is that there is no window in the closet, but there is a light, so it isn't a huge deal right? We also have been having some trouble with the boys closing the playroom door during the day (and it somehow locks itself). So far no one has gotten locked in...but I think it is just a matter of time UNLESS I just keep that door closed as a preventative measure, and if it is a closet we would keep the door closed pretty much all the time anyway.
Please feel free to weigh in - especially those of you that have actually been to our house!
