Love this simple cabin living room: smaller stove on simple slab hearth, permanent bench/sofa. good for sleeping a person or two, storage underneath. Floor is perfect. Shelf over window optimizes the use of space.
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.
