The main level had a rather low ceiling which was sheetrock. Typical of the 50’s construction a rounded arch led to a hallway that gave access to the bedroom kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen sink was a cast iron unit. A classic from the 50’s but the porcelain finish was chipped and in poor condition. The bathroom was very small and the shower was actually placed in the rear doorway that had originally led from the octagon to the addition.

Evidence of an 8 foot by 34 inch door was observed by the hinge cutouts on the frame. Some sort of decorative transom window had been removed and replaced by plywood above the shower.

The bedroom had 2 inch insulated walls and the windows appear to be in fair condition. Protected by weather and sun by the wrap around deck the only real issues with the windows is layers of paint and old pane glazing. Plus the aluminum replacements for the original rope and weight system.

More work will be needed to restore the windows on the south side which were not protected from weather by a porch.
