Odd nook in hallway
We have a really odd nook in our hallway that we cant figure out. it is a little bump in that runs from the floor to the ceiling. Its the outside corner of our dining room which is angled instead of a 90 degree corner. what is this? why is it there, we thought it was a telephone nook, but the house was pre phones...
its odd because on the opposite side of the hall the living room has a very shallow closet with a door. maybe 5 to 6 inches deep but its the same cut corner as the dining room.
has anyone seen this in their own floor plans? what was the point?
we think our home was built around 1840/50 but we have no real records to show the year built. the city says 1840ish but the newspapers in the crawlspace say 1850.
