Do you have enough space for your family?
Will you have to move if you have another baby?

How happy are you with the amount of space you have?

We live in a 4 bedroom high ranch.
That means 3 bedrooms upstairs and a guest room downstairs.
1100 sq ft the up stairs living area. 3 bedrooms, kitchen, dining room and living area.
So far we have 3 kids. 6, 4 and a newborn.
We have anough room for another 1-2 kids I think but then we need to move. Or add on/extend the house.

Bought in 2010. Prices were reasonable. Currently have 5 chikdren kah.

Stop starting threads for your research, OP.

It seems like OP is doing research for an article & is the same OP as the other threads.
It's not nice, honest, or professional to use people like this.

really? In that case my parents gifted me a huge mansion in Boro park because I didn't have a child every year and they wanted to encourage me not to space their grandkids.

Also, because my husband plays the tuba, a huge house was a necessity so that I shouldn't get headaches.

I wonder where people with smaller houses keep their live ins. It must get so crowded!


Alternatively, we still live in a refrigerator box on the sidewalk in Flatbush. We rent it for only 1000 a month and you really don't need more than 4 sq ft for 2 kids. I'm expecting my third, and we'll probably move into a trailer in a parking lot when she's born.

I live in Lakewood. Have 2 bedroom small home with 6 children. Don’t want to buy bigger because I’m trying to pay tuition. Was always scared if I bought too big s house wouldn’t be able to cover my tuition.

I have 3 kids in an apt and feel like not so much space. But guess what?? I think its a silly question bec while most of us want more space as our family grows, not everyone can affird it unless I move out to a non jewish far away neighborhood with huge cheap housing for 200k.

I grew up 12 kids in small 3 bedroom house. We always fought over showers and bathrooms and wouldve loved to live in a huge house. But, hashem didnt give us enough money for that. So too, me n my dh would lov to buy a small house, knock it down and build huge like the rich ppl r doing, but hashem decided its not for us now. Bh we can pay our rent...my friend has to scramble month to month for rent bec has trouble finding a job after being pushed out.

And, I know families who live 10 to 12 kids in a smal 2 or 3 bedroom apt...but most ppl in my neighborhood live in houses.

Ok- I’ll bite!
I feel squished! I bought my house when I had two and a half kids- I thought my house was huge! And now, a few kids more and I’d love to move! Its divided on three floors so the noise is diluted bh but it no longer seems “huge!”

Goodness. I almost answered a few hours ago and then backed out for some reason. Glad I did.

What, am I being entered in a lottery if I contribute to the research? If it's enough to buy a mansion where I live I might think about it.

Plenty of room bh. We live in a shoebox but a nice one. My oldest sleeps in the bathtub, the next two sleep in the entrance (we have a built in bunk bed that goes to the ceiling when not in use) and my little one sleeps by the pantry. It’s a good thing we don’t stock up on food items so much!
My bedroom is used as the dining room during the day.
Were very happy bh.
