I am writing to ask you for some help with our house. ANY help is greatly appreciated!

We have three boys, ages 10, 9 and 6 and are always entertaining friends and family. We have very busy lives with the boys who involved in student council and every sport and school club possible!

When we bought our house 8 years ago we only had two children so we had plenty of room for us to grow, in our 1700 square foot house. We loved the neighborhood and schools, however the house needed a ton of updating and work when we bought it, and we have plugged away at projects ever since.

Six years ago, we had another child and as he is growing, we are quickly running out of space for our family and our lifestyle. We can't afford to move or add on. I know we can make our house work for us, but we need to reorganize and repurpose almost every room in the house. And our kitchen is literally falling apart! It's very overwhelming! We have put a ton of money into our house (finished the basement, replaced the floors and knocked down walls on the first floor, updated bathrooms, new windows, roof and doors) as well as done A LOT of the work ourselves to save money (bathroom renovations, paver patio, painting, trim work, etc.) but our house still falls way short for our lifestyle and still needs a lot of work.

My husband and I volunteer a lot--he coaches several rec and club sports for our kids' teams, and I volunteer at school, coach a few teams and host several neighborhood parties for the neighborhood association. My favorite party to host is my Halloween party, complete with a 30'x40' haunted tent that draws families from several surrounding neighborhoods each year. I love having all the neighborhood families here (80-100+ kids, plus parents)! We also love having friends and neighbors over for happy hour on Fridays, football on Sundays, crab feasts, our annual Preakness party and more. We also have team parties here for the kids and their families. Oh, and did I mention that I also host Thanksgiving and Christmas here for our families.

Ellen, we are out of money and ideas! Please send some help our way!
