When I was in fourth grade my parents built a new house for us. When the house had been framed Mom noticed a large unused portion of space behind a wall and had a “Kid’s Study” built in instead of just walling the area off. I thought it was really cool and we put our brand new Gateway computer that came in four or five HUGE cow boxes in it. We ended up moving the summer before my freshman year in high school so we never really took advantage of the space. But it has stayed in my mind as a good idea.
So when we were looking up things that we might like in a new house I saw lots of pictures of similar study areas and wanted to incorporate one if we had room. I envisioned less of a closed off space and more of just a large desk area for the kids to do their homework in. I recognize that they might want/need the peace and quiet of their own rooms to do intense homework but I thought that this would be a good place to work on group projects with friends or a good space for us to help them with homework and concepts.
