Looking back toward the side/front door after the formerly "white" carpet was ripped out:
Northwest corner after demo-ing the closet, cabinets and paneling:I am certain that this was a former open back porch that was at some point in the mid 60's enclosed and converted into a more functional back entry. Needless to say when it was enclosed they did a lousy job of insulating and this room has always been freezing in the winter. I am glad we were able to take it all the down, insulate well and replace the drafty windows.
Fun thing about demo-ing all the way down is that occasionally you discover that doorways have been moved somewhere along the line.
