When you are doing a renovation project on an older home that has gone through multiple additions, or been converted to a multiple family home, you are bound to find some interesting things.

We are working on a former 2 family home, located in Lancaster NY, that was built in 1889.   When we pulled the entry apart to open the staircase back to the upper, we discovered a nice detail under the stairs. This wainscoting could be from 1889, or could have been added during one of the numerous renovations. In either case, it is a terrific stair detail for us to bring back to life.
