    I think I see some painted cheesecloth on the walls of a couple rooms. Wooden walls behind them?

      We don’t call it cheesecloth where I live since it is a much heavier weave, but I’m finding a bit of it left in my 1935 house. They will be shiplap walls, but they were not meant to be seen.

        Same with where I grew up. It was more like a lightweight canvas that served as a base for either paint or wallpaper.

        So,not saying you’re wrong because I agree. In the light blue room (last picture) there’s torn material hanging down under the window revealing what looks like deteriorated plaster and in the photo above it (yellow kitchen), the fabric appears to be covering some lathe above the door and shiplap elsewhere. Is this also typical? Did they just fill with what they had or does the area above the door in the kitchen signify an old “remodel” of the door hole, possibly?

    • Looks like they might’ve painted over some wallpaper and the moisture in the paint caused the paper to release from the wall. Being a dry waller I’ve seen this quite a bit. People think you can just paint over it and it’s no big deal. But then this happens.

      Yup, I bet there is beautiful shiplap. You can tell when you first come it that she was once a very grand lady. Could not believe the transoms are working. Love this whole house.

    The home needs some work but the price certainly reflects that. I see some of the trim on the porch and other areas that will need to be replicated. I would imagine all the walls are wood under the paper or whatever is on the walls now. It’s going to be quite a charming home for the right person!

    Poor little thing. Someone got ahold of a bunch of white paint.

      The coastal southern states tends to like their woodwork painted even in “Victorian” homes. I’d be okay keeping it as is and having fun with coloring the walls.

        Me, too. When it comes to houses in the South, I find that I enjoy the white trim. A well-chosen white can do a beautiful job of setting off an equally well-chosen paint color on the walls. Maybe my liking for the painted trim has to do with the hot climate and I think it could be psychologically “cooling.” I don’t think I’d be so enthusiastic if the color of the trim were to be anything but white.

        And now, of course, I wait for the wonderful Southern house with a color other than white on the trim…to fall in love with and prove me wrong.

    I truly hope she doesn’t become a “flip.” I hope that someone buys her, restores her and really loves her.

    What are the restrictions by the register on doing the restoration of this home? Are there any restrictions on remodeling the inside of this house? What about the outside? Are there any other buildings on this property and are there other lots that can be added to this lot to make the lot larger? Thanks.
