    This is a nice house too. I’d have to remove the siding which was added later (which I’m not allowed to say what it is made from) but I’d wear a mask and remove it ๐Ÿ™‚
    This type of siding creates a flat look to the house.

    The floor plan obviously didn’t include a first floor bath originally. Can you imagine passing through the bathroom to serve dinner in the dining room? I realize it’s a necessity but the restroom should be accessed at the back of the house off the pantry.

      That is SO wrong! I was looking at that, and I just sat here and laughed and laughed! I knew somebody would have something to say about that! I mean, looks like it would be easy to turn the pantry into the bathroom, and have the ”bathroom” be the butler’s pantry! The ”serving room” as we used to call it at Grandma’s house in Greenwood, SC! Actually, my OTHER grandmother used to live in Mitchell Indiana, for many years. My grandfather was a general manager at the Lehigh plant there. She had a very famous rose garden. I was trying to figure out what her address was there, but guess I will never know. shoot, this could have been her house! She lived there in the 40s and 50s. They loved the town!

      I think I would make a hallway between the kitchen and dining right behind the fireplace, and have the bathroom entrance off of that hall. It would probably mean that has to become a 1/2 bath. I’ve never liked bathrooms that you have to access from the kitchen. I would need to find room for a laundry too. I think one of the bedrooms would have to be sacrificed for bath, closet and laundry.

      I don’t really get why Americans always want a full bathroom everywhere, especially when there are no bedrooms nearby. In this house, a half bath (toilet/sink) would have been enough on the first floor. I would enclose it where the current toilet is, and voilร , you just go from kitchen to DR thru a corridor and no longer thru a bathroom.

        You are right Miss-Apple37. Americans are that way. I did want to tell you, I love the Loire Valley. If I ever amass a large fortune, I will be in the Lorie Valley.

        Ok let’s not generalize people folks. “Some” or even “Many” Americans like that yes. But not everyone is the same. I personally am ok with one bathroom on the second floor. ๐Ÿ˜‰ But I can totally understand someone wanting to have a toilet room on the first floor, especially if you have guests. Its just convenience.

        When I was in Poland, every new house I visited in Belsko-Biala had bathrooms on both floors interestingly. Full bathroom.

          Well, apologies if my comment was awkward. Let’s go with “some” or “many” then ๐Ÿ˜€ . I had also in mind the fact that often, in the USA (see, i do not generalize lol), only one full bath seems (cautious here too) to be unthinkable, and that it has to be, or tend towards, one bedroom = one bathroom ratio. (I read this in travel advice to Americans coming to Europe, saying that we have less space to live and less bathrooms).

            Hahaha you know I love ya miss-apple. I mostly meant it because Iโ€™m not one of the masses that does that. ๐Ÿ™‚
            Iโ€™ve only been to Paris France. But the apartment we rented there was VERY tiny. No room for the bathroom that was there. Lol

              Ahah no doubt it was! Our bathroom is on the second and a 1/2 floor, Iโ€™d LOVE to have a restroom on the first floor, but we canโ€™t, no can do! ๐Ÿ˜•

      I agree. Even if they had a toilet room on the first floor, I highly doubt it would have been placed next to the dining room. Most floor plans I see from he period that have bathrooms or toilet rooms (WC) on the first floor, are near the stairs, or kitchen. Like others on the board have said, this spot was probably a butlers pantry.

    Why do people think dropped ceilings are a good idea in a residential house and the kitchen backsplash is that old brown paneling. Other than that, not bad..

    • AvatarGloriaH says: 84 comments

      It became trendy in my area as energy prices were soaring in the late 70’s. In the kitchen, it allowed for the use of fluorescent bulbs which were only available in lengths. I know in some of my homes, trying to control that heat rising to those tall ceilings has been difficult. Freeze sitting on the couch and get hit in the face with heat when you stand up.

        very true … and fun to rip out now. ๐Ÿ™‚
        Although, sometimes the brackets have ruined old ceiling ornamentation or tin or steel ceilings from the period.
