    Love all the beautiful detail..the doorknobs and the intricate fixtures are gorgeous..you don’t see those today. Don’t you wish you could have lived there during the day it was first built. Thanks for sharing this, love watching your project. When I get to South Bend, I am going to drive by to see it in person. Have not been in that area in years so now it gives me something to watch and see the changes. Keep posting and thanks again. When I was a small girl, we use to drive by that on the way to swimming lessons at the Natatorium almost 60 years ago. Times sure does fly but I have some beautiful memories of that fine city of South Bend.

    I am so amazed the condition of the woodwork.The originality is priceless. When in years past, being in apartments, renters must have taken pride in their “home”. Thank you for allowing us to come along on your journey of renewal.

    I find this house so interesting as I can just picture the antiques that I have had handed down to me from my great-grandmother that would most likely have been from the same era in a home like this. I have an oak table that she used as a kitchen table and I now have it in my dining room. I also have a dresser with marble inlay on it and a hutch that the doors were removed from it for some unknown reason and several antique dishes (some would be over 200 yrs. old). My grandmother was born in 1889 and therefore my great-grandmother would have most likely been born in the mid 1800’s.

    My son lived in two different apartments in your home. Loved visiting him there and seeing all the beautiful woodwork. Must admit it was very cold in the winter.

    On your collage the fourth pic down on the left, can you please tell us what that spout is?
    I love your house it’s amazing! We just finished revamping an 1884 home in Edwardsburg, not nearly as beautiful or extravagant as this house. Our house does lend to the area history it was originally owned by the local undertaker. There’s also documentation on the wall leading down into the basement on when they added electricity, plumbing, costs, families that lived there, dates, etc I know the pride we feel about our home and what we’ve achieved I can only imagine how you feel about yours! I would love to take on a project so grand as yours. Best wishes, looking forward to your updates.
