If you are lucky, your new-old row house will have some treasures in it–in the form of original details from a bygone era. Unfortunately, some of those eras will include the 60’s and 70’s and it will be more of a tribulation to get rid of those particular details.
This 7×7 extension contains 2 bathrooms. It appears there were no bathrooms inside the home before it’s construction in the 50′s.
What looks like wood floor here is really the third layer of linoleum. All that chipped paint is probably filled with lead. Let’s hope there is a treasure under all that.
None of the three fireplaces are currently working and they all look to be originally coal burning. The plan is to convert them all to wood burning.
