The Keeping Room

Early American architecture structured a domicile with what was called a keeping room, that centered on a hearth. The space was furnished not unlike a coffee shop. 

I find that life is most comfortable and productive when I manage the back parlor of This Old Architecture as if it were a keeping room. Sedentary work is most easily accomplished in a space that forestalls shivering. The kitchen is close by, and I can easily manage basic life support functions by getting off my seat every twenty minutes or so. Chair expert Galen Kranz's recommends that maximum period of arsch arbeit.

An open hearth was furnished with a pot hook for stewing. A slow cooker on the back porch does the same thing and is equally well ventilated -30-
