log cabin / with pot belly stove Good idea if no heat present during winter. (We cooked on our stove and heated our house & water for showers/cleaning, one winter when we were w/o electricity for 9 days.
We love everything about this window-filled corner, not to mention the view. The picture window maximizes the view, while the double-hungs give ventilation. We also love the low built-in book cases that have function as window seats.
