    Cute house. The only thing I would be doing a massive restoration on is the painted floors and trim work. I will never understand why people paint floors. The rest of the house is cute. I think the only thing aside from the restoration of the flooring and trim, id do a more period style kitchen, and thats it, everything else is fine.

      Because not everyone like the same thing. I love painted floors, would do so myself if we had wood ones. There’s also the problem people run into when they are in bad shape, an easier option.

        I like them too; I wouldn’t necessarily paint ones that were in good shape but definitely
        low quality or damaged ones.

    • Often times the floors in these older homes have been sanded multiple times. After several times there is not much original wood left to refurbish. The expense at that point is too great to replace all the floors not to mention homeowners would rather paint and keep the history intact.

    This house is adorable! Love the painted floors and the ceilings! Don’t think I’d change a thing, unless it was the bathrooms….make them more period appropriate….and change the kitchen a little. I have an old farmhouse sink that is just looking for a home like this! 🙂
