Who owns an old farmhouse???

18 years ago

I have a question for you!

I was trying to figure out what the functions of our rooms used to be. We have a c1850 vernacular farmhouse. Our "living room" has a tin ceiling. This is where the front door used to be. It has since been moved. Do you think this room used to be a foyer? I was thinking it used to be a dining area however I don't think that you would enter the dining area from the front door. That makes no sense at all.

For those of you that have older farmhouses what rooms do you have downstairs and what do you think their uses were when the house was built??
