Re: Anyone else have a bigger family but a small house?

i have four kids, plus me and my husband, in a 2 bedroom single wide trailer. it's probably about 800 square feet. when i was pregnant with the twins, that was the first question we'd get. where will you put them?! we had friends sending us real estate ads. we would love to move, but for now, this is what we can afford. it's cramped sometimes, but it puts in perspective what's important in life - family, not stuff. in 4 years, my husband will be done with school and be a doctor. then we will move to a lovely little cottage somewhere.

my understanding is that if you are a renter, there is a limit of how many people can live in a house/apartment. but if you own it, i don't think people can say anything about it. we own our trailer but rent the land. i was a little nervous to tell the landlord, but they needed to know how many people lived there in case of emergencies, like fire. they didn't give us any trouble at all.

congrats on the baby!
