    It looks so charming from the outside. They need more pictures of the inside. I do love the claw foot tub, though!

    Thank you for featuring Indiana. North Vernon is a quiet, small town south of Indianapolis.

    Very nice. The Free Classic porch is from after 1910 according to the Sanborn map. The rest of the exterior, as well as the stairway, stained glass and fine faux-marble mantel look original to me from the 1880’s. Possibly a planbook house, Palliser?

    Might not be the original porch, but I think this house wears its porch very well. I wouldn’t change it.

    Congratulations Ann! It’s a wonderful house that will be very rewarding for you to own and look after.
    I hesitate to give any advice without looking at the house and consulting with professionals, although I have a strong feeling about one thing – the roof leak must be fixed to prevent further damage! I suggest that at the first opportunity, you should locate and repair the major leak, at least on a temporary basis. If this is beyond your ability, call local roofers and tell them your situation. There are good people out there that can help! If they can earn your commitment for future work they might be willing to spend a little time to fix things for a year or 2 until you can get it done right. It makes little sense to me to make other permanent improvements such as the electrical system when the roof is leaking and causing more damage!
    That’s my 2¢ – God Bless You and good luck!

    Congratulations, Ann! It’s a very charming house. I think Jim is spot on when he says deal with the roof as soon as possible. The fact is you can’t realistically start on any interior work without protecting the exterior first. Leaks in the roof will destroy any work you have done if they are not dealt with. As far as the rest of the project, I am inspired by Ross and the amazing work he has done on his house! (restoringross.com) I hope he will post a comment as he has done exactly as you are going to do on your house and a good deal of it by himself! Good luck with your project and send us pictures of the progress!
