Musical Rooms – Literally

Last Sunday, Karl came home with a drum set.  At 11 PM.   It ended up in Aaron’s new office.

We had a LONG family debate about what was going to happen with the drum set, and where it would go, and if Karl should move his room.  We all have a bad habit of talking over each other, so we passed Buster around, as the talking dog.

To jog your mem’ry, Karl had the smallest room in the house.

Even though Aaron’s new office had been set up for less than a month, he conceded his precious man cave to Karl for the sake of the drum set.

Changing rooms might sound like not a big deal to you.  But you know, a custom built loft bed isn’t the easiest thing to move & rebuild.  Karl had to completely disassemble his bed, and reassemble it, with no instructions.

Of course, he also seized the opportunity to paint the walls.

It’s baffling how much more space he has in this room.  SO MUCH ROOM FOR ACTIVITIES!

It passed the chastity wobble test.

Karl’s recording studio.  You know, for podcasts and music and sound effects and stuff.  Say cool words.  Do cool things.  Be cool in general.

On Saturday, this impromptu jam session happened.  We only had time to record it on a cell phone, and not use the real recording equipment.  But now your speakers are blown out, and you know this room is definitely “musical,” by all definition.  Also, they don’t know I’m posting this video, and they will probably be embarrassed.  Give them your internet love :)

    I really like the blue! It makes the room seem much bigger than it did when it was red. I hope Aaron’s office ended up someplace nice… :)

    • Kenz

      I think it looks bigger too. Way bigger. Oh you know, Aaron and his roaming office. It has now been in 3 different rooms of the house. I’m sure you’ll see it soon ;)

  • Gretchen

    You are nicer than I am! I would have been all, “oh, drums! yeah, no room for those in here; I guess they’ll have to go….outside.” ;)

    • Kenz

      ha, well, there really was quite the debate regarding the drums and if they would be able to stay at the house. I might have caved…. I’m going to be a horrible mother.

    the blue is really nice- and it goes better with the rest of the house now too I think. But I’m going to need an updated diagram of who the heck lives in what room where now, haha :)

    • Kenz

      It’s so true. The red clashed with the house REALLY bad. I really should do a diagram of who lives where. Everything changes WAY too much.

    it looks great! and I love being cool in general :)

    • Kenz

      Don’t we all :)

  • Katja @ Shift Ctrl ART

    I love the new paint on the wall and I am impressed that you moved that huge bed. Is that one you built? I will have to wait until everyone is awake here before I can press play on the music :)

    • Kenz

      Karl actually built the bed all by himself. I keep telling him to write up the plans so I can publish them. And definitely wait til everyone is awake. It’s not the softest music.

  • Heidi Selover

    I know that the point of this post wasn’t to make me want to move in with you, but that’s what it’s doing. You guys are the shiz.

    • CrowderSoup

      Just move up here already!

    • Kenz

      Or maybe it WAS the point of this post :)

    Wow! I’m actually pretty impressed with the jam session! Well done, fellas!

    Way to go to you all (especially Aaron) for compromising and coming to a fair solution. That’s a pretty rad loft bed as well. Tell him to write down a tutorial ASAP! :)

    • Kenz

      Tara, they will be SO happy that someone approves :) And Aaron is hands down the most patient man I know. And it’s true, we NEED to get Karl to write that tutorial.

      • Joshky

        His patience and ability to compromise must be recent developments, lol.

        • CrowderSoup

          Oh they’ve always been there. I just never compromise with you because you’re a big dumbo ;)

    You guys are such a great family! I really like the new paint color and the bed Karl built. Yay for the Step Brothers reference! ;)

    • Kenz

      haha I’m so happy you caught that! I was worried it went right over everyone’s head :)

  • Michelle

    Very cool set up! I always wanted one of those desk come bed lofty type pieces of furniture but my room just wasnt big enough to fit it. Love this great job :)

    • Kenz

      Thanks! Karl will be very happy you approve :)

  • Vanlun

    Hi, Kenz
    I love it! Love the color of the room too.
