Default Working in a time capsule home.

Started working in a home that is a time capsule. Wallpaper from the early 1800's in mint condition, damn near all original paint still in great shape. I have always wanted to see a home like this. I finally got my chance and it is amazing to see. We are in doing minor touch ups only. Should be a challenge for the paint stores to match our colors.

The home has been passed down from generation to generation and they all kept it extremely clean and original.

That is so cool. I've always wanted to see a house like that, well, in a maintained original state. I get into some that are close to being maintained, but, someone, sometime gets the remodeling itch and wipes out a hundred years of history. For a moment there, I thought you were going to say it was a time capsule from the 1950's instead of the 1800's. I know I've been in quite a few of those type of homes with the original masonite on the walls, the gold-speckled laminate kitchen counters, the gold or olive colored appliances........lol.

Bring samples to me! No problem. Those colors are actually easier to match because of the more limited pigment variations they had available to them then.

I got a cal to look at a small project at a house I always liked. Didn't have time for the job but i was going to go just to go inside. The owner had their daughter do it. I was bummed. House was probably built around 1890-1910, which is old for around here.
