    hahahahh...my husband says that I have occupied the entire house and all he has to himself is one dresser drawer ahahahahah..he is fibbing of course, trying to get sympathy from our friends lol.
    He has an entire man's dresser...Half of our walk in closet and half the garage.
    We share the main bedroom, the middle room is my doll and quilt room storage. It has a small electric bed and we both use it for a reading room, I own the closet in there lol.
    The front room that I call the white room is mine!! that is where I knit and read and watch tmy favorite dvd's..hubby does come in and sits in the chair and he does stay awhile...he ain't fooling me, he likes my movies lol.

    \Then there is the studio, it's all mime but both our computers are in herel...my long arm is in here too.

    Here is a pic of my doll and quilt room...most dolls are naked..the porcelain ones. I also have clothe dolls not here.

    Front doll is an EPA original, made by her

    Yes, I have most of the house for my collections and craft stuff

    Hubby has a nascar collection and John Deere stuff.

    He also has a huge garage (how big???) It is long enough to pull 2 semi truck and trailer in side by side and has the big garage doors with a loft

    :lol: Generous soul that I am, William has his chair and a half of a 10x10 storage unit!
    The rest of it is mine, and he best be mindin' his P's & Q's if he wants to use it!! ;) :lol:

    (In reality, the living room is pretty much his, the kitchen is his, he has a bathroom to himself, and I let him share my bed...what more could a guy ask for? ;) )

We have raised 2 DGK, one of them stayed at school and worked and took classes this summer. then we have 22 yr old . that we have had since birth)15 yr old and 13 yr old qho we adopted and their mother who is 37. We do not have any room, but we survive and have learned a lot.

    NOT ENOUGH!! I have 3/4's of our w/i closet, 2/3's of the sunroom and a 1/4 of the basement that I call mine. He has 2 car garage and 3/4's of basement. Basement and garage are loaded. When we got married, we both had our own houses. We howed and howed!! But still, OMG. Stepson no longer lives with us and my son is going onto college. Will most likely take over stepsons room in near future.

    I have a painting/rubber stamping/geneology/scrapbooking room in the basement and almost all of the upstairs is my sewing room. I have a couple of beds, a few dressers (with fabric in them), a couch, tv, chairs up there too but every room has fabric and sewing machines stored in it. Oh, my computer is up there too so that I can take a break from sewing and get on this board. Our upstairs is almost 2000 sq. ft so I have a generous sewing "room."

    All of them. I only allow my DH and 3 children to share with me. I figure if I do all the cleaning then I get to claim all of it. 3 bedrooms, 2 bath rooms, livingroom and especially the kitchen.
    I am just kidding, sort of. I have a small area behind the couch in the livingroom that is all mine, no one dares go in there. I can keep an eye on the kids and do my sewing.

    Since the kids have moved out I turned one room into my craft/computer room and another room into my sewing haven. My husband turned the basement into his saltwater reef. Most mornings I go upstairs to play & he goes downstairs to play. Since he is retired & home 24/7 this has helped save our sanity.

    The whole house is mine!!! :lol: But my work area is just in one big room. We enclosed the garage, paneled it, added a bathroom, windows, carpet, heat and air, the works for my sewing/craft/office. I love it!!

    I am a widow and live alone, basically. Have DGS 16 and 10 yrs old who spend a lot of time with me in the summer months and they tend to hog the TVs, etc. But sometimes I send them home to Mom and Dad. They have learned to just walk around the quilting stuff.

    I've one room on the main floor, which is my room for sewing, computer and storage for my plans,seeds and maps for all my gardens. Five of my quilts cover the walls. There's wall space for 2 small quilts yet. However, I will be using part of an unoccupied bedroom in the basement for my Easy Quilter I just bought, unless I take down my big ironing board and use that space. I need to get a table to set that up on.

    It's all mine - I am living alone in a 4 bed house. I do try and keep one room habitable for guests though.

    Someday... someday...

    I have to share my sewing room with my laundry/pantry... always a mess. Too many clothes and dishes, cans, et cetera. I always feel claustrophobic in there. Then, my guest room is taken up by a queen sized bed and half the closet full of my dh's old stereo components that he won't get rid of. The garage is a collection of all our junk (mostly kid stuff) and the storage room is the same way. My dh has the basement as his room that we are "guests" in. He also has a space all to himself for his hobby. When he leaves for a year, I am taking over!!!! HA HA HA HA HA HA.

    (I still have years and years before my kids move out, which is good because I LOVE having them here, so not having space until then is okay with me.)
