Built in 1914, this house is amazing.  It features an iridescent-glazed Pewabic tile fireplace, and several of the rooms have bi-fold french doors to separate it from the main hallway.  Our friend Tracy, (she has since “retired”) made all the plaster repairs and painted the hallway.  IMG_1584

About 15 years ago I stripped the woodwork and the doors in the backroom off hallway.

The set of french doors and the transom (all pine), and the picture rail were also stripped down to the bare-wood.  The transom mechanism was still there, tightened and cleaned up a little, and is fully operational.

Here’s the adjoining sun room, where I stripped all the diamond leaded windows and casing.
