This is in the master bedroom looking out to a dining room (now construction storage). Ambient light comes from an 8' patio door.
Best guess is this used to be an 8' sliding glass door that led to a lanai. A former owner enclosed part of the lanai to make a dining room. When I stripped off the knotty pine that was in the bedroom, I found mold in the drywall and stripped the walls bare, 1x2 firring and all. Some of the firring was rotted.
The white painted backing is 3/4" plywood. Looks like it was a bookshelf in the past.
Options I've come up with is to stud over it and be done with it. Other options are:
1. Make the empty space a bookshelf
2. Put in frosted glass to bring more light into the bedroom
3. Move the double door to the left so the one door doesn't block the wall switch (the wall switch is now behind the door when it's opened) and then add frosted glass on either side.
