When we first looked at this picture, it seemed as if a tree fell into the house and this board was accidentally blocking the hall. However, if you take a closer look, you’ll notice the wooden board was purposely placed in that position. It is even fitted into the wooden railing and behind the couch.
This makes very little sense to us. Simply adding a gate would have been a little easier and would have looked a lot nicer in the picture, if that’s the purpose of this board. Maybe it is meant to keep their kids entertained, you know, crawling across a wooden board from one side of the floor to another? We can’t think of anything.
