Every house had a lounge -- a room quite unheard of in these parts. I am pretty sure those chapters were written by people far and wide, so I am suspecting a common cause -- floor plans in some people's packets perhaps?
No floor plans that I saw... maybe we all just have lounges?
As an Australian, perfectly unremarkable to me, to the point that I assumed it was entirely non-regional and absolutely common everywhere.
It's not like it is a "sitting room", which no one outside of pre-1900s Britain has ever had!

I'd love to join this year's NaNoWriMo, really. But the rules state that you cannot start with a base project you've been working on, you must start from scratch. My current WIP is already about 40% written (First Draft), and I have to deliver it by mid December, so starting a new project during November would definitely jeopardize my chances to complete both, I think.
