I am currently living in a very 1 bedroom tiny studio flat with my 17 month old daughter. She has the main bedroom, and I have slept on the sofa in the kitchen/living room area for the past year.
I don't think really they could, we would probably all have to save a year or so to combine funds to get one built. I am studying at the moment, working towards a degree, so hopefully can secure a teaching job in a few years time, and maybe move onto getting a mortgage eventually. But I still need more room now really.
I am currently living in a very 1 bedroom tiny studio flat with my 17 month old daughter. She has the main bedroom, and I have slept on the sofa in the kitchen/living room area for the past year. I cannot sleep in my daughters room as we disturb eachother, and she ends up crying if I make the smallest sound. Anyway have been waiting on the home options register with the council for a property the last year, and am band C and it looks like I will be another 2 years of waiting to get a decent property. I moved into this nice home 4 years back, lovely area, everything and it breaks my heart to leave it, to go back to where I was living before in a tower block, that seems to be my only immediate choice. I was wondering if it was attall possible for the housing association I am with to build a lean to, to tag on the back end of my ground floor property, to give me a bedroom so to speak. I would think they could claw back the money for the extention by putting up my rent. Or if not, whether I could have the permission to build one, with financial help from family, as i currently am on benefits. Would it be worth asking the housing association? Or is it cheeky?
