I had the pleasure of touring an old house here in town that has been empty for 18 years. I got the tour from the new owners. This one is going to be sensitively restored by a local couple and lived in once again. The house was built in the 1920’s by a couple named Morley and Bessie Heal.
The image above is of the bathroom as it was found. The fixtures including this sink and the claw foot tub will be cleaned and restored and returned to this very room. I plan to do a very small series of paintings based on the original condition of the house as one of my Winter projects – two interior and one exterior. I am very excited!
I have been graciously invited to tour the house again when it is complete. I can’t say how excited I am to be able to report that one is being saved….
