To Make Room For His Fourth Kid, This Dad Turned The Carport Into Something Awesome

Brazedowl is no stranger to having to make room in his home due to the impending birth of a child.

When the Imgur user and his wife discovered they were expecting their fourth child, they found themselves in quite the dilemma. The couple’s already cramped house had no room left at the inn, forcing the pair to get creative with their living arrangements. Without a permanent solution, the family would be forced to pack up everything they owned and begin the process of moving to a larger home. But being the hardworking handyman that he is, Brazedowl set out to convert his unused carport into a bedroom space for his three oldest children. With just a few weeks left until the baby’s arrival, Dad prepared to ready the space in just 45 days.
