We do most of our homeschooling at our kitchen table – which was until rather recently, a little on the small side. A couple of years ago we decided it would be better financially to renovate rather than move. Our small, cramped galley style kitchen had become much to small and there was not efficient room to store all our school things and still have our home resemble – well, a home.
So, renovate we did. It took a lot of planning and a full year to complete the renovation – which we lived, worked and schooled through. The result was a much more functional kitchen/family space that we could cook in, do office work in, do school work in and yes, even do laundry in. A variety of well placed cupboards and drawers and a much larger kitchen table enabled us to live and school much more efficiently. The end result? There is a place for everything and everything is in its place (well, most of the time) 😉
While most of the school work is done in the kitchen, we have also been known to use the living room, bedrooms and even outside on the deck when the weather is warm (but not too windy). On occasion we ave even made use of the library. So, there you have it. Now, where do you homeschool?
