Tonight, I needed to finish the walls and windows of the sitting room. The south-east corner of the room is the bottom of what will be an octagonal tower on the third floor–thus the intriguing shape.
I cut out an opening for the window in the first wall and added studs to support the back.
And put the wall in place.
Did the same for the second wall piece.
Likewise for the third piece.
Then I had to make a decision: did I stop there or add another wall section?
Wasn’t quite sure, but I think the extra section is good. It gives a better sense of the octagonal shape from the outside.
And the corner just looks a lot cozier when you peek around at it.
Also, the opening is still big enough to show the room well from the side.
Placed a long piece of board over the top of the rooms to get a better idea of how it will look. Here’s without the extra piece:
And with it:
I think I will go with the extra section. Besides, doesn’t it make this little corner look comfortable and inviting?
So here’s the east side of the house for now.
Addendum: upon reviewing the photos one more time before going to bed, I now think the room looks better without the extra wall section. Hmmmm…
I think I’d have to vote for without, too. It’s looking good!
