The Sitting Room

We go from the dining room to the sitting room down a short flight of stairs – there is a difference in level of 1.4 metres, making the ridge-beam 4.5 metres above the sitting room. There is no ceiling as the ridge-beam and rafters as well as the tongue-and-grooved sheathing are all visible. Set above the stairs there is a skylight to provide extra lighting during the day.





At the foot of the stairs we have an area extending under the dormer for watching television and recorded films. Since the walls are too thick to connect via wifi we have installed cable to the computer on the office-balcony.



At the other end of the sitting room, there is a wood-burning stove and an area for reading or talking. As my son said, “a heated discussion centre”.




The door leading off the sitting room was the entrance to the original cottage from outside. It now gives onto a small hall which in turn gives access to the bathroom, the bedroom and to an open patio.
