The electrical fixtures have been installed. We went with ceiling fans in each bedroom, mini halogens in the kitchen, wall sconces in the bathrooms, and a chandelier in the dining room.
The interior of the house was prepped and primed!
After 90 years the original heart pine floors are still amazing! After sanding our refinisher looked at the wood and said “These old floors are 1,000 times better than new floors.” He is a man who knows what he is talking about. Unfortunatly, in a couple rooms we had to replace the floor because it had been damaged over the years. We went back with pine, but in order to make the color match we had to mix some stains. It should be close.
The trim is done, and it looks fantastic!! We have built-in benches by the fireplace, columns and bookcases between the living room/dining room, plate rail in the dining room, and a recessed door to the second bathroom. Also note the bricks in the fireplace have been repointed.
The trim and coffered ceilings are going in! We opted for the traditional Craftsman style molding for the windows and doors. The living room and dining room have coffered ceilings.
Today the interior doors were hung. We chose a shaker style three panel (solid wood) door. We plan to stain the doors a rich dark brown – as seen below.
The tile and hardwood floors have been installed. The bathrooms have subway tiles on the walls and 2 inch octagon tiles on the floor. The laundry room/mud room has 12 inch white tiles on the floor. The hardwoods in the kitchen are pine to match the existing floors in the rest of the house.
