Mother of SEVENTEEN, 38, opens the doors to the mega mansion where she raises her enormous family – showing off multiple kitchens, home theater and even an in-house DAYCARE
A mother of 17 gave outsiders a glimpse into her hectic family life inside their mega-mansion – which has its own daycare, home theater and multiple kitchens.
Nancy Young, who lives in the US, also has seven grandchildren – with 12 of her children still living at home.
The 38-year-old regularly vlogs her busy family life as she deals with both her adult and teenage children, right down to her newborn son, who was born in October.
In a clip posted earlier in January, the busy mum took people around the home she shared with her husband – who has not been named and remained behind the camera – and their children who still lived at home .
Supermom Nancy Young gave viewers a glimpse into her busy life as a mother of 17. She is pictured here in the entryway of her home.

“We’ve made a bunch of changes to our house since our last house tour, including some of the older kids getting married and moving out and new babies being born,” she explained in the description of the house tour video, which she posted to her. YouTube channel.
The busy mom, who previously said she and her husband had been saving for “21 years” to buy their dream home, opened the front door to their entryway, which featured a grand spiral staircase and a home office-slash-kids’ music room. the right
Nancy then moves into the large kitchen and points out their large round dining table, which seats 10 and shows two high chairs in the corner.
“I like having a round table,” she gushed. ‘When everyone sits up to the table for lunch it just feels like you’re closer to everyone.’
Nancy added that it was a joint effort to keep their house clean, mentioning that her older children helped clean and made it clear that the family did not have a maid.
“I would love to have a maid, but our maid is me and my kids,” she joked.
Nancy added: ‘So (the table and lazy Susan) is clean because the kids cleaned it, if I clean it it might look a little different.’
While she doesn’t have a maid, the Young family splurged on a little extra appliance help, pointing out the two dishwashers in the kitchen and installing some extra shelves that pull out to save counter space.

Nancy explained that they had small ones for their children to keep track of their belongings. She is pictured here with the cubbies in the garage

“One thing I still want to do to my kitchen is I want to repaint my cabinets, but that’s going to take a lot of work and will be quite expensive,” she noted.
The kitchen leads to the utility room, with large laundry units and a wall-to-wall cloakroom.
“It just makes it convenient for kids to change, we basically have a changing station on every level of the house, so it makes it convenient and really easy to change the kids when you need to,” she explained.
Next, she pointed to the downstairs bathroom and noted that the lights were turned on by motion because children were constantly running in and out.
In the garage, Nancy showed some extra storage space – and their massive minivan in which she transported their family – and explained that they have storage vans, much like a school.
“(We have) cubbies for their coats and backpacks and things, so just when they get out of the car, they can put their stuff in here,” she explains, showing off the open storage.
They also use the garage for extra food storage, with more fridges and freezers for the large family.
On the other side of the kitchen is the large living room, with a large U-shaped sofa – which can fit the whole household – and TV on the wall.
Nancy set up more cubbies on either side of the TV for her giant brood to help keep the house tidy.
‘I absolutely love having it when the kids are doing their work. They find something that belongs to one of the kids, (they) put their stuff in their trash and then at the end of the day they empty their own trash,” Nancy explained.
On the basement level of the house they have a day care room, which has something for all the younger children
The kitchen leads to the first of two laundry rooms in the house, with large laundry units and a wall-to-wall cloakroom.

She continued: ‘That way the kids aren’t running to all the bedrooms to throw things away, messing up other people’s rooms and taking a lot longer on their work, so it just keeps everything in one central place and makes it quicker to clean .’
In the basement of the mansion, the Youngs have something most homes don’t have – a day care room; with a dramatic play area, indoor jungle gym and a changing area.
“The kids love it,” she enthused, also pointing out a downstairs kitchen and bathroom.
‘Another thing the kids will most likely love is the theater room. It was actually in the house when we moved in…but it was nice to have.
“I wouldn’t actually have put one in if it wasn’t already here.”
There are also two bedrooms on the basement level: one with a bunk bed, shared by two of her young daughters, and another with a double bed shared by others.
“I know a lot of people judge me for that, but that’s okay, that’s what they like,” she said, defending the choice.
Nancy heads upstairs to the bedrooms and navigates through a game room – complete with arcade games.
“Just to one side when you first walk to the top floor is where we have our nursery,” the mother pointed out.
The nursery is connected to the master bedroom by a large bathroom – with a spa bath – that Nancy and her husband share.
Despite raising a large brood, the couple still manage to work out – with their fitness space outside the bedroom.
The family also has a laundry room upstairs, and another bathroom for their eight sons.
“We have two of our boys in the nursery and we have three more boys in here,” Nancy said as she stood in another bedroom. “We have two double bunk beds, so there are two boys in one bed and one boy in the other bed.”
However, the couple’s 16-year-old son does not share a room with anyone after their eldest son is married.
“Our oldest son got married and moved out, so he’s not here anymore,” she explained.
Their large house came complete with a theater. Although they didn’t add it themselves, Nancy said it was ‘nice to have’

Hundreds of people commented on the home tour, many in awe of how organized Nancy and her family are.
‘Love that your house is so well organized. Never apologize for a little mess when you have kids. Your kids look so happy and that’s so important,” one user wrote.
‘I love how you’ve designated areas for different things throughout your home, but things don’t look cluttered. Great job managing it! Great to see you make your home work for a big family,’ added another.
‘I absolutely love your house! The only thing I would do differently is the youngest children would have to be on the same floor as me. You are truly blessed! Beautiful house!’ read someone else’s feedback.
In an earlier video, Nancy talked about the birth of her youngest son – and her fear that he would be born on Halloween.
“I was really hoping not to have him that day,” she admitted. “I felt like if I had him on Halloween, he’d look like a little alien or something.”
However, her youngest decided to turn up early and turn up two days early – on one of her sons’ 16th birthdays.
