This was taken with my back to the front door, looking out through the door (and wall) of the arctic entryway into the living room. The fireplace is at left, where those long boards are standing up. The ladder is leaning against the edge of the upstairs floor. (That is not where the stairs will go up to the second floor. Those will be in the foreground, which is currently blocked up.)
Okay, now you've got me in tour guide mode. More of that tomorrow.
