momofkhm Posted January 16, 2012 Share Posted January 16, 2012 How do you deal with a room for them? We're looking at the real need to move dh's folks down to us and in with us. We will need to buy a new house to accommodate them. I've already figured that we'll buy a house and then build an addition for an apartment for them. (Some of you helped me with that decision.) But I figure this new house won't appear within the next 12 months, more like in the 5 year plan. That means I will have one or more kids in college. If we moved now, I'd look for a 4 bedroom so each of the kids could have their own. But if I have one or more in college, do I need a bedroom for them? Finding a 3 bedroom is so much easier! My parents were in the same house from 3rd grade until after my second child was born so I have no idea how my kids will feel. DH's parents moved from east coast to west coast back to east coast while he was in college and grad school. But he's an only child so they always had a room for him. I figure with our numbers here someone must have moved while you were in college or while your kids are in college and know what the kids feel like.
