Creating Space for Family Life
Creating warm and useful spaces for a mother and four young children in a small apartment is a challenge, one this volunteer design team welcomed. Mom, a preschool teacher, now has a beautiful bedroom with a desk to work on lesson plans. The girls have a bunk bed dream room, and the 9-year old son and baby brother share space highilghted by bright spots of orange, a favorite color. The family has a cozy den and generous table for meals and games. The family was overwhelmed when they returned to their once-empty apartment after the transformation was complete. "This could NOT be our house," the kids repeated as they explored with beaming smiles. It truly is a new home for a new life.
