In the daytime, the lounge is a bright sunlit spot due in part to the glazed roof of the pull-out extension. A three-seater sofa sits below the glass ceiling and there are two single chairs spaced around the room. Centre stage is the log-burner, sat on a slate topped plinth, and in the corner is a wall-mounted TV and Blu-ray DVD player.

One of the single chairs opens out to make a small single bed (182 x 77 cm). It is best suited to an older child or small adult.

The large window ledge and woodwork around the pull-out section are all made from wild cherry, harvested and milled on site, here at Coed Cae. The pelmet above the pull-out extension window, and the two side tables were from the same oak tree as the timber for the bed. The oak wood-paneling at the back of the sofa, along with the wooden crates, enamelled standard lamp  and the coffee table were all up-cycled garage finds.

The picture of Barmouth above the door is by Valerie McArdell from Oriel Gallery in Barmouth. No matter how many times you straighten it, it will seemingly always return to crooked.
