While not a room, it's still the first space visitors see. And it has a bit of history, including a blunder. It's always had a firewood alcove along the wall shared with the garage, but the short wall at the front end has been the focus of considerable attention. At first, this wall was simply going to be solid, just like the rest of the house's front wall. But after I started framing it, I kind of liked the look of the exposed beams, and some friends remarked they liked it as well.
But my choice of siding may be at odds with the exposed beam design, and it may get covered over after all. We'll see; I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.
