At some point in this home’s history, it was 2 apartments. Both this room and the kitchen right below were added on. So we are thinking that this was a kitchen for the top apartment.
Just a few weeks ago, this space was functioning as our laundry room/get ready area.
Once we finished the new laundry room, it started to look bare without the huge washer and dryer.
I was so ready to get this ugliness out along with the very last of the green linoleum.
Since this room was an add-on, we were HOPING for brick all the way down this wall. Besides one window where my closet will be, there was brick all the way down.
The other exciting thing was that when the guys started moving the 2 x 4’s that were between the dry wall and brick, the ceiling started falling. So they had to think of a solution: either rig up the existing ceiling or put in a new one. Meanwhile they kept seeing this green bead board about a foot above the existing ceiling! It confirms our thought that this space may have originally been a porch. So IF this stuff goes all the way across, we are going to keep it.
I love all the surprises we find in this 97 year old house!
The question is whether or not we should paint the brick. What do you think???
