When we were house hunting a couple of years ago, finding a home with extra space for a homeschool room was my top priority. The home we ended up purchasing didn’t have any extra living space that we could designate for a classroom, but the storage shed in the backyard definitely had some potential.
Fast forward two years. This summer we finally got around to cleaning out the shed and transforming into a functional learning center. We still had quite a few unpacked boxes of “stuff” from our move that I had to sort through. Mr. C found a new home for all of his tools and spent several weeks working on the building in his spare time. Here are some “before” pictures.
This is what it looks like now.
After lots of scrubbing and organizing, ceiling repairs, and installing new carpet and an air conditioner (Praise the Lord!), we are now enjoying our wonderful classroom.
In the next few days I’ll be giving a tour of our little one room schoolhouse and sharing more about how we homeschool.
