The window makes sense from the outside but not from the inside.
Our room is part of an extension to the original house. The original house had (again vocabulary fails me) a gable? in the back. A triangular cast to the roof, slightly in front of the rest of the house (can get a picture later). When they built the extension, they tried to repeat that idea. The window is right in the middle of the triangle, from the outside view.
I like the old part of the house much better than the new part, but the new part is useful.
And vocabulary evidently fails me re: the word "design," too. I have some money for this but really not a lot. If I spend $200 on this whole thing, that'd be a bit of a nail-biter -- $100-$150 is more like it. I like thinking about it and planning ahead so I use that money wisely -- what I DON'T want to have happen is spend the money and then three months later decide it was all wrong and change it. Three years, sure. Or five years, or whatever. I don't expect it to be permanent. But I just don't have the dough to toss around and see if I like it and then change it if not.
But above all, I'm talking about it because I'm enjoying the discussion. I'm not asking anyone for permission.
