New Project – Co-Sleeper
October 21, 2013 § 28 Comments
I think I have a new next project. Many people have wondered just how and where the up-coming baby will be sleeping, well, here is the answer for a while:
As of right now I have a king sized bed. I don’t really ‘NEED’ that. I have debated sticking a crib in the tiny house, having a movable one that I could tuck behind the media center when it wasn’t in use but that is probably a pain that ultimately wouldn’t happen much because it wouldn’t be convenient enough (not being lazy, being realistic). As of right now I have 16″ on the side of my king mattress, if I replace the king with a queen, or even a full sized mattress then that grows to about 38″ clear. That is more than enough room to put a co-sleeper and potentially a crib eventually. The plan for the house is for 2-3 more years, by that time I will be ready to upgrade and give the kid some of their own space. In the mean-time it should be pretty darn convenient to be so close!
I like the way this looks and I bet it’s pretty darn easy to make. I think I will call it one of my winter projects :). I want to keep my eyes out for other styles I might like to emulate as well but this looks pretty classy :).
More on the property, I have been working with the bank on being financed, turns out I am fanciable, and not as bad off as I sort of expected after a foreclosure but still not as good. I am going rounds with them at the moment. I could potentially buy that property I like so much and rent it out making a little bit (accentuate ‘little’) of money every month. I feel I should be in a place where I could potentially stand to make at least $150-200 a month from renting it after the mortgage is covered though. And I am looking for a 15 year term and all they are offering is a 30 year term… so the search will continue. Even though I am feeling the pressure to get moved before winter hits I am not feeling up for hooking myself into a 30 year commitment without considering all options. (It is tough to not get caught up in the personal feelings of how awesome it would be!)
And finally, I get to find out if I am having a son or a daughter tomorrow morning, pretty exciting if you ask me! Whichever way it goes I know they are tough, they’ve been kicking up a storm and can easily be felt/seen from the outside now. Even though I am not gaining nearly as much as I should I am certain it is MY body that is suffering, not the babies :). If you would have asked me before if I wanted a boy or girl I would have said hands down boy… they are easier, and I just get along with ‘dudes’ better, I am a tom-boy myself so I would feel obligated to ‘girly it up’ for a daughter. Now though, I have just had the feeling it’s been a girl since pretty early on, I’ve got myself pretty convinced of it and I would feel duped if it WASN’T a girl. I’ve definitely warmed up to the idea, I think it would be pretty fun to have a chica ;-). I hope everyone’s had a great weekend!
