Our Project House was built in the 1920s and is a craftsman-style house. It has beautiful hardwood floors that will be refinished, original 12-inch baseboard molding and amazing original windows. You just have to look past the dirt, grime, bugs, and ignore the smell to "see" the beauty...
Scott's parents purchased this house for a STEAL considering the great shape it is in for an old house! It needs updated (cosmetically) on virtually every surface of the house, but the structure and bones are amazing. We are totally updating each room with newly refinished floors, paint, and light fixtures. Most rooms just need some "make up".
You walk into the house into a little entry area that I think would be the perfect place for a china cabinet or other display piece. The floors are pretty badly stained in here, but a good sanding and fresh coat of stain will bring them back to their original glory. I am on a search for a new lantern to hang in this space.
The stairs are to your left and to your right is the rest of the house.
The living room has tons of natural light and now has central air! Bye bye, window unit! The dusty, non-working fan has also been taken down.
The living room is separated from the dining room by these fantastic columns and molding. I LOVE that these are still intact in this house! With a fresh coat of paint, they will be gorgeous.
I will show you the kitchen, master bedroom and master bath early next week! Such exciting things in store for this sorely neglected house.
