Work is proceeding on the new home for the babies. We are so excited! Windows are all in, walls have been added or moved, and bathrooms are being renovated specifically for caring for small infants. This home will have floor heating in the winter, and geothermal heating and cooling for maximum energy efficiency. There will be a total of 6 bedrooms, so that we can more effectively isolate very sick or tiny infants - something we have always struggled with.
There is space for the Little Flower office to move in with the babies- we can't wait for that, and plenty of space for our sewing room so that we can keep making our diapers, crib sheets and other items. There will be a dedicated laundry room and several new industrial size washers and dryers. We'll have three outside balconies where we can hang our laundry to dry in the sunshine. There is a large, semi-underground storage area for our warehouse needs, and will be a yard/garden where we can take the children outside to play.
Here is the kitchen and dining area:
This is the bathroom, where three baby changing / washing stations will be set up, along with a special baby bathtub:
This is the upstairs play area, large and sunny with plenty of natural light:
