AARGUH! Need help with a name!
Older houses often had a structure that went around the front door to a house. Essentially it was a small, outdoor room with windows and a door that allowed people to enter, shut the door, then open the main door to the house.
This prevented huge gusts of cold air from entering the house and warm air from leaving.
What was that structure called???
All I can think of is breezeway, and that is not correct!
