All that is well and good, but in the real world, it doesn't matter. If HO's start getting sued by their neighbors, it may start making a difference, but I haven't seen that happen much if ever.

Lead paint. Delicious but deadly.

Red gum or another eucalyptus would be a candidate for the mantle wood.

Park View is one of Portsmouth's unappreciated treasures.

As to Churchland, way back when, it was Norfolk County, and then Chesapeake (for a time) and now Portsmouth. Back in the day, when you crossed the Churchland bridge, you were in a whole different world!

The "Churchland Truckers" got their name from the fact that originally, most of Churchland was comprised of "Truck Farms."

Yawn.

Still beating that "mi casa, su casa toxic" drum?

I posted these photos because most folks here *love* and appreciate the craftsmanship of these old houses.

Fortunately, you and your fear-breeding ilk are in the minority.

Why is it every post I see from you basically says that old things are bad and that guys like you are here to save the world from all kinds of toxic stuff? I know that in California, everything is known to cause cancer. You come off as sounding like a self important little man that thinks he known more than anyone else. I'm not surprised though since that's the same feeling I've got from every abatement guy I've ever met.

That is just sad. Why not put up a sign that says "life leads to death" Just stupid. I wish I could find the PSA warning people about di-hydrogen monoxide

Hi Rose!


Awesome house, thanks for sharing the story. Can't help you with the mantle issue, it all looks like firewood to me...

Not a PSA, but a Penn and Teller video about a woman who gathered signatures on a petition to ban dihydrogen monoxide.

"Excessive exposure can cause excessive urination, indigestion, vomiting, etc. It's everywhere. We really need to ban it."

She gathered hundreds of signatures.

Re: Stunningly Beautiful Wood In A 1908-built Sears Home In Mt. Olive, IL


nothing at all fancy like in the house pictured but in 2005 we re built the front porch on a 1919 sears south westerny stucco 2 story home package. that house cost $2,000 then delivered to the spot and we re built the porch for 110k- inflation I guess. anyway, the main porch stucco columns were cracking and the homeowners wanted to know what was wrong. we found that there was no wood left inside the columns ( 1" thick stucco) as it had all crumbled to dust. after using sure wall we were able to save the foundation piers and skirt wall but that was it. that 110 k would have bought a few of those houses back then...

Dustin, I think that may be the post of the year You hit the nail on the head – be careful though Hitarms will creep-up behind you.

Welcome back Rose – that’s some beautiful stuff – regardless of what it’s covered in

awesome home. my grandad had a lot of old prints and paper work of homes he did back in the 1900s that were given to me after he passed away i lost them when my home burned down in 1983 it was a good way to pass time looking at them.
