It's nice to have a spare room. We call it the craft room, and it's a good place for painting, stamping, and sewing. We all use it. Problem is, it's a good place to pile things too, and a good place for bookshelves. This week we are starting a proper house renovation, turning this room into a student's bedroom with ensuite for Catriona, and sacrificing an odd bit of hallway to create a small and efficient craft room connected to the parents bedroom. It will allow the two rather large boys to get a room each too, setting them up for their end of high school and university years.
