    The decorative brass shower handles….a recent find? I’ll bet it’s fun to still be making some new discoveries. It’s heartbreaking to think that someone would saw off that beautiful fretwork in order to sell it! Not surprising though given the “care” of the rest of the house. Thanks for continuing to share videos of the areas that we haven’t seen. I’m getting a much clearer mental picture of the overall layout. I can imagine a child playing in that attic. It’s so cavernous.It will be beautiful when all is repaired. In my opinion, it’s the star of the show. Do you have any guesses as to how many years it will take to do most repairs? Things usually take longer than projected. A very rough estimate?

      There is still one area of the Mooreland House that we have seen but not been in. The back hallway has a small bathroom and a powder room that no longer have a floor and are caved in. We are shooting for 10 years to make it livable. It literally needs everything. We do love the attic. When we talk about working in the attic now people can visualize it a little better.

    I’ve never seen such ornate shower fixtures in an old home. Just beautiful. I can’t even imagine laying all those tiny hex tiles on the floor. Someone had the patience of Job.

    Will you try to keep the shower tile or was it part of a remodel effort in later years?

      The shower knobs were probably not original. The shower tiles were probably done in the 1980s or so. We are fairly certain that the sink itself is original because it matches some other marble in the built in cabinets as well as the dry sink in the parlor on the first floor.

    Seriously, if you put 10 years!!! into the restoration of the mansion, I think you should change the name to the Mooreland – Paden House. What you have done thus far is pretty incredible. The thought of that level of physical commitment for that length of time deserves some sort of recognition, although I’m betting that’s not on your mind right now.
