Upstairs was more of the same. The stairs take you up to the center of the house with bedrooms in each corner and a bath between the back two. One room was actually fairly nice with new drywall and Pergo flooring - this would become our bedroom for a long while. The bath was not to bad either. The other back bedroom was converted into a kitchen, so we actually have a full working kitchen and bath while we demo the first floor - gee.... we're spoiled compared to some other renovators!! The front two rooms basically became storage.
The third floor was also gutted by the PO and drywalled. The carpets gotta go and redo trim, etc., but all in all not to shabby - these would become are basic TV/office areas. There is one big closet on the 3rd floor which will be used to house AC equipment for the 2nd/3rd floors someday. Under the rugs I discovered nice 4 inch heart pine floors.
And last let's not forget about the basement. Another actual selling point for me. Yes you heard me right! The ceiling are surprisingly high and the floor has been re poured (almost 4" total!!). It has an outside entrance which my other place lacked and will be plenty big for the "museum" as my friends call it. I collect and restore old radios, jukeboxes, etc. which you can imagine take up some room. And most critical of all - Bone Dry. Being up on the hill, the floor of the basement is almost at street level. Also down here is the original boiler - but we'll get to that later.
Lets break out the sledge hammers......
