so you are gaining space,

What will you do with that space as you get it?

I am already in the the process.

When DD1 moved out her old room became an exercise room.

DD2 is moving out in July and her old room will become a guest room. Since we do not have a lot of guests there is not a big rush. I tentatively have given myself a December goal. Also her walk in closet will make for great storage. As we gain storage space we are trying to not use the attic for storage.

Not sure about what we will do when DD3 moves out. DH has mentioned making it a computer room but I like having our computers in the family room, makes it easier to play on the computer while doing other things. My grandparents, parents and sister turned an empty bedroom into a playroom for visiting kids/grand kids. That may be an eventual possibility.

I made it a sewing room. When he moved back, I put him in the spare room, (where my imaginary roommate used to live aka the illegal apartment). When he moved out again, I made that room into the spare room and office.

I had a plan to make that into my spare room/office/work out space, but since John is marrying a young woman with a small child, I'm not comfortable storing my free weights in that room--I'd rather have that room as the place where my new step-grandson can play or watch his videos, etc.

I may have to rethink how I store my weights if I want to move the workout space there. So it remains in my bedroom for now.

DH has measured all the rooms for a pool table to see in which one it will best fit.

When Joy moved out, Erica and Angela each got their own rooms. When Erica moved out, Dylan got his own room. When Angela moved out, I got a sewing room. When Joy and family moved in, Alex and Lindsay got the sewing room and the sewing room got moved back into the kitchen. If and when dh and I are a family of 2, the extra rooms will become a sewing room and an office.

When my older sister got married my parents tore down a wall and added what was bedroom space to expand the living room. So I still had to share with my little sister. I tell my kids that they all got their own rooms but I had to join the Air Force to get my own room. Then I got married and lost it. I have had less than 2 years in my life that I have not shared a room.

I think dd would be outraged if we took her room away. Besides where would she stay if she came to visit and where would we put her stuff and furniture?

i am talking about the final move out, not moving out for college. We did nothing to our DD's rooms while they were in college.

But won't they still visit? My aunt's boys are in their 30s and have been out of the house a long time, but they still have their rooms there.
