Entering Cottage #1
Entering between the Cottage (foreground) and the Addition. Eventually the front porch will be replicated and added around the Cottages's front door and Tollkeeper's Window in the right foreground. (May 2005)
  Skylight #2
Immediately upon entering, there's a skylight over the narrow hallway between the Cottage (on the right) and the Addition. Both ends of the hallway will be entirely glass. (June 2006)
