I could do a couch like this, have the side part make a hallway from the doorway to the second bedroom. Then build the wall unit on the outside wall with a built-in deal off towards the kitchen. Then there would never be a glare on the tv too!!
patio idea...you can build that firepit for under 100.00 go to any big box home improvement store and browse the garden dept.. look for 12" retaining wall blocks. For a modest sized pit, buy 26 of them and stack them 13 to a circle.
