It’s All In The Details

One of the most charming elements of our house are the original details that have remained throughout all these years.  The house was built in the 1920’s (can’t recall the exact year), but that’s a loooong time.  I want to make sure we preserve these historic details because I think it adds character to the house (obviously) and they are great conversation starters as well.

Everyone who has been over to see the house are amazed that such architectural details have endured the current era of demo-and-renovate everything and anything under the sun.

I don’t know if I’ll ever make use of the built-in ironing board and laundry chute.  I personally would feel awkward ironing in the kitchen and also the laundry chute goes down to the basement which is pretty dirty and unfinished.  Maybe one day…
