Bergeron / Wellmeier Residence -- living room

View of the Living Room looking toward the Southeast. The exterior deck is to the right where the heavy timber beams cantilever beyond the glass wall. The copper hood for the fireplace is typical of many of Harris Armstrong's designs of this time. The glazing is generally large panes of fixed (thermal) glass. In this main living space, cross ventilation is provided by jalousie windows fitted with screens located in the corners of the room.

The hearth is comprised of brick pavers set into floor. The wrought iron log support was custom designed by Armstrong. The line of brick pavers runs North-South from the front entry to the fireplace dividing the house into the public one-story portion to the West and the two-story private portion to the East.
