Gives me an idea for an evening room by the fire towards the center of the house away from the windows. I picture it a little more rustic with supporting posts, and chairs grouped around the fire. It would also serve as a large hallway through the house. I like the idea of moving toward the windows and viewing areas by day, and moving away from them at night. I would also like the large firebox even though I will build a masonry wood heater - keep it filled with wood.
