    Atm we are a 80 yr old 5 br house, but it has recently been sold to a person who only wants the property for the inground pool and the shed out the back.
    So all 7 of us will be moving into my aunts place. A four B/R the kids have their rooms, but DH and I will be in a caravan out the back.

    a house to fit

    We are in the process of looking at house plans and have altered a few to have everything we want I want 5 b/rooms and a study rumpus, large laundry outdoor entertainment area we are looking at 420 for ours at coomera on the gold coast. But I now want to move to Calamvale in Brisbane (South side) only because the school there is excellent it is a P to 12 it has about 2250 students but....... it is all on one campus, it is sub divided into mini schools of Pre, junior Primary (1-3), upper primary(4-6), middle school (7-9) and senior (10-12). I mean gosh 5 children one drop off and pick up point, I can't wait. It is a state school, ( With a day care centre practically next door) it was opened in 2002 and started with the new curiculum and set up that all Qld schools will soon come into line with. But to go there you have to live in the catchment, so we may have to buy an established house and for what we want we are looking at 380 to 550 ouch. The market has dropped alot and is expected to drop even more by the end of the year which is when we are going to buy so fingers crossed

    Wow Dee, sounds fabulous. I often think how nice it would be to live in Qld, and wow, to have all the kids at the same school, luxury.

    hi all, we are currently living in a tiny cottage that is only 14 squares, and it has 4 tiny bedrooms. I have got 12yo daughter in her own room 13yo son and 6 yo son share, and 7 yo son and 4 yo son share. bub no 6 is due in may and is supposed to be a girl, so she is going in with her sis after the first few months in a cradle in my room. but we have bought another house, that used to be an old hospital, so the renovations can start and we will end up with six bedrooms (and they are huge cos they used to be hospital wards!!) i keep thinking how many little bubs must have been born in the house when it was the hospital and cant wait till we can move in and fill the rooms ourselves with all our sweethearts!!!
