There's really not much to see inside - just five (mainly) empty rooms with your typical Queenslander fixtures such as VJ walls and ceilings, belt rails that go hand-in-hand with single-skin walls, picture rails, hoop pine flooring and a bit of fretwork. This is the view down the hallway towards the front door.
|Front door hardware - pretty shabby|
|Back door - missing some vital things like keys and a door knob. Somehow the property manager didn't pick this up during the recent inspection!|
Amazingly, the hung sash windows are all in tact and move up and down quite easily. A bit of paint and they'll be good as new.
One interesting thing about this house is that there are no breezeways or fanlights above the doors, which was fairly typical of houses built in that era. Our house was built as a rental property by the people who owned and lived in the house (that used to be) next door. I guess those little details were deleted due to lack of funds at the time of construction.
|I'm sure there were light fittings attached when we purchased the house.|
One thing that I haven't yet resolved is how the new light switches and power points will be installed without any ghastly conduit. Any ideas?
