A Homemade House

Liam got a wild hair when a boxed shipment of mine came in.  His first reaction was, "Can I keep this box to build a house?"  Well, he wanted all of them.  We gathered up some other boxes we had recently put in our garage so he could have more cardboard to work with.  He kept bugging us to cut a door and windows, but as life would have it, and being busy with the house, we told him that it would be a little later in the day before his house building would begin.  He wanted everyone to chip in, making it a family event.  We even mentioned adding construction paper to give the house some color and definition.  He was ecstatic and couldn't wait to get started!  I love how much he loves to build (something the boys have in common) and how happy it makes him.  His creativity amazes us all.

Liam put himself into a ball so his dad could put his house on top of him.  The box was a little small for our growing boy.


This is what we ended up with until he decided that he wanted to do more, such as stairs to the attic, and attic entry way, more windows and a patio for his back door.  Simplicity went out the door at that moment.  Aaron and I looked at each other and laughed.

And then brother had to put his touch on the curtains, making them look a little more detailed.  Liam liked that idea.
