When Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard first announced that they were moving to a new house, fans wondered what it meant for their family. If they were building their own place and it only had a few bedrooms, did that mean that they weren’t planning to have many more kids? Well, now that the Dillards have settled in a little, they’re giving fans a glimpse into their new home, and it’s clear that they actually have plenty of space. Well, kind of.
In a new YouTube tour, Jill, 28, is walking her fans through the four bedroom, two bathroom abode. She starts in the living room at the front door, then shows off how one of the bedrooms has been converted into an office for Derick, 30, who’s currently in law school. Somehow, though, the family still has a guest room — or, as Jill calls it, “Israel’s nap room whenever it’s nap time” — because, as the mom reveals, her two boys are sharing a room. And, as it turns out, they’re sharing the smallest room.
Fans couldn’t help but notice that Israel’s toddler bed and Sam’s crib seemed like it could barely fit in the space allotted for them. “[The] house is cute, but you’d think [if] you have enough money to build your home from [the] ground up, you could give your children a bigger room,” one fan commented after Jill promoted the video on Instagram. “Can you give the kids the guest bedroom?” wrote another. “I got claustrophobic just looking at their room while there is an empty big room with just an air mattress.”
However, it does seem like the toddlers have the run of the home. As Jill explains in the video, the house is on the messy side because, despite cleaning up some areas so she could film the tour, her boys just wouldn’t stop playing. But most fans appreciated seeing the mess. “I’m so glad you posted this while the house is not spotless and the kid’s running around,” read one comment. “Now that’s real life!”
