The wood floor was covered with the thin plywood and carpet installed. When original owners sold or passed the house down, the new owners probably wanted to get rid of the carpet and had no idea there were original wood floors under the plywood! We are fixing our old house too and we had no idea there are some nice wood floors!

The heater turning off is a cool down cycle, you have to let it finish cooling off before you cut power, running for such long periods can hurt the unit and possibly even crack the heat exchanger without time to cool off

You can call it a 'hoarders' house because thats how it was sold to you & truely what it was... Think in terms of what any historic plaque out front would say... The Potters House... Or whatever her name is should it appear on said plaque. Its now a transition house, call it that currently. A few here say Money Pit. You would have to love your grandparents as I do mine to repair that old lamp they left you. Yes, it would cost nothing to throw in the garbage, but I paid to get it repaired and now it functions just fine in my living room. People & family who come over say, "great antique lamp, where'd you get that?" & "I'd love a lamp like that" ... Then I say, "yes my Grandmother loved that lamp too!"... Though the house is no famiglia relation, as you say, "the Bones are good". Use any historic grants on structure, electrical, plumbing, etc. Use your funds and elbow grease on making it look the time period & pretty enough to sell to a buyer who would appreciate all of the above. Prayers to you & your family.

If its been freezing that much outside and the furnace has been off then your vent cap on the roof may be frozen over or blocked up which will cause the furnace to overheat the heat exchanger and trip a high temp limit sensor and turn the gas off till it cools down. Resetting the power is just clearing the error code on the board and making it run a cycle again until it trips another code. You can do some serious damage to the furnace and even have carbon monoxide issue in the home (I know you got a detector which is always a good idea). Been doing HVAC for 21 years.
ieatyomama दिन पहले
If it were my house the first thing I would concentrate on is the foundation. I know that is hard to do when the ground is frozen solid but the foundation needs to be solid and level in order level the house. The cracked drain pipe is going to be a problem also. Except for "P Traps" the rest of the drain pipes should be empty, if water sat in the pipe, froze, then burst the pipe that means there is a blockage that is backing the water up into the pipe. While you're waiting for the ground to thaw to work on the foundation and drains the drywall/sheetrock from the outer walls could be removed. As old as the house is I doubt there is any insulation in the walls, plus I doubt the "headers" over the windows and door frames are anything more than 2x4's and will need to be upgraded and brought up to code. Also the age of the wires and the fact that there was significant evidence of rodent infestation means you will need to upgrade the electrical, install GFI breakers in the kitchen and bathrooms and upgrade the wiring to the furnace and water heater. The tripped breaker is evidence that the newer furnace is using more amperage than the breaker/wiring can handle. I'd definitely wait until the foundation was sound and level before I started repairing walls, installing windows or doors, repairing/refinishing floors, or replacing the roof. All of these can and will move when the foundation is leveled and can crack windows, doors, walls and even floors. Of course you will do the repairs however you see fit to do them, I'm not telling you what to do, I'm just saying if it was mine that's how I would go about making the repairs. As much weight that was in the house, and the amount of cracks at the windows and doors there has to be foundation problems. That could be the reason water is backing back up in the drains. It is a neat old house and I look forward to watching your progress as you go. Good luck with it

If you can keep the lath and plaster, do. Those houses are way quieter than modern homes built with drywall. I know from experience.

This inspires me to find hoarder homes for sale! I have rebuilt homes before but this look'in like my next level. Also not shure when you published this vid but PLEASE DO NOT PULL UP THE PLYWOOD!!!! wait till nearly last because your going to damage the original flooring more. you have all the repairs, people, debris and what not beating the floors during a rehab home.
Tasherameracis दिन पहले
had a thought as to why they may have done what was done to the 1st level floors. In the late 50s to mid 70's there was a common habit of putting in bold solid colored walls and bright carpets. It's possible, since the 1st floor was renovated at some point that is was done at this time. That might explain the cheep plywood with fake wood and carpet over it. I have seen this in other old houses. If that was the case, you may find nothing wrong with the original floor other than needing to be refinished.

The breaker being tripped concerns me more than the hvac shutting off. A furnace shutting down as designed...A-o.k.; but what caused an external breaker to trip? That points to something bigger imo. Electrical first, then heat. And at least wrapping the sewer pipe in plastic wrap to prevent a significant methane gas leak/buildup sure wouldn't hurt either. This has been another fine instalment in the "magically hairy, potter's" tale. 😂

Poor house. Has good bones. I lived in a divided Victorian. 8 studios. All wood and floors were oak but they painted most of it white except the main hall floor and my room. It made it look flat, no dimension and why I dont know as the years of white paint never touched up was black.

In the downstairs there is a sewing machine head as you panned across from the sewer pipe.. can't tell what the make of it was maybe a Singer or a Singer Pearl which was a W&W after they were bought out by Singer. Also saw a treadle cabinet in the upstairs that was in pretty fair shape! I collected antique sewing machines for a few years and have 9 treadles. Singer had a Canadian factory and I have a couple of Canadian born Singer sewing machines. Love this channel and this intersting story. I have a lot of compassion and empathy for the former owner of the house. I hope she had a wonderful life. If I ever get up to Canada I want to visit your shop!

Ok, I'm addicted to this adventure. I'm also completely freaked out by all the mold and the fact that you and your helpers aren't wearing hepa masks. 25% of the population is genetically susceptible to mold illness. 1% of those people become debilitatingly ill from mold....and drs usually miss it. Your "allergies" may really be a reaction to toxic mold or an allergy AND a reaction. Please me careful and bring a mold expert in to assess the property!

Here I am again writing! When I was in my 50s I bought an old historic house at an auction. The house was 110 years old! It was an overwhelming experience. 1200 sq ft on first and second floor and over 1,000 sq ft on the third floor. It had a 4 car carriage house (garage to us!) I was and am a single woman so it was another adventure to tell my grandchildren and great grandchildren. The house was in Lansing, Mi. Nothing like what you have found. You have so much knowledge about the good and bad the save and dispose of. I am awestruck with what you know and how very hard you work! Please continue to keep us up to date. This has become almost the only YoUTube I watch.

It is not hardwood, it is pine, there were not really any sub-floors back then. Pine is pricey to get sanded because it fills up the sand paper very quickly, but can give interesting results although not a very tough floor.

The original wood floorboards may have shrunk. I bought an old house that was abandoned for some time. When I started renovations. I pulled up all the old carpet, excited to restore to the original hardwood and found that the rustic hardwood floorboards had shrunk over the last 125 years and you could see between the boards to the crawl space. They had smeared tar on the floor in places, I guess to try to seal the floor. The wind blew through the floorboards and 1000s of little critters were able to come up from under the house to the living area. It was impossible to heat and keep the critters out. So.... in renovating I used plywood over the old dilapidated flooring and then put new flooring over the top of that. Keeping the cold and the critters out.

You might want to run a few HEPA air filters for a week to clear out the air. If that doesn't do it you can look at fumigating the house with high-powered ozone from a contractor who specializes in that. To eliminate hidden critters you will need to heat the house to at least 60 celcius and hold it there for some time (a contractor who specializes in bed bugs can help you with this). Do an air quality test to ensure the house is safe to live in.

You don't have to constantly restart the furnace. It's working. After heating the loop it automatically turns off until the heat in the loop is too low then it starts heating the loop again. Just let it work. Maybe you have to check it for leaks again and give a key to a neighbor to check it regularly, because the cold might burst pipes or create leaks.

Just putting my 2 cents in, i own a 1905 home with lathe n plaster, my wife and i removed 3 layers of wallpaper and repaired all the cracks, if i had a decent budget i would have removed it all to have access to the old wiring and ran new. I'm a carpenter by trade and love the old woodwork and hardwood flooring. The previous owners may not have known about the hardwood under the plywood if there was carpet throughout the house, and when it came time to upgrade they chose the newer floating floor to put down. The house definitely has good bones and potential, but there is going to be some heavy investment to bring it back. Good luck, and really enjoy the videos. P.S. give dad the chair!!

I'm an antique dealer in Australia and I've had two houses like this- one of them was a fully furnished (everything covered in dust) house that was from around 1890's that nobody had lived in since 1974, in a dying agricultural town in NSW called Rankin Springs. The family had just upped and left it untouched. There were calendars on the walls from 74 and it was a real untouched time capsule as someone had fought in the first world war and his kit/gear was still there along with medicines in the bathroom cupboard from prior to WW1. I ended up selling a bunch of A model Ford stuff from out of there to museums internationally along with full, unopened coffee tins from around 1901. Anyway here's my tip to you because I too had to drive far to get there (around 350kms one way) and it gets a bit depressing coming back to a house that doesn't change much with each trip so, *I found that you have to clean at least one room from top to bottom on each trip* and that room has to be empty when you leave. EMPTY, not a pile of boxes in the corner with stuff in them. If you leave a pile to sort through and deal with in each room then they become a headache in each room and you start doubting it will ever get done- it begins to weigh on you and after a while you'll find yourself unknowingly goofing off because there's so much mess to go through in every room. Also, you restore an empty house but if you try to fit doors and scrape back friezes or polish brass doorknobs etc, you're wasting your own time as *the first job is to empty the place* .

If those crocks don't have cracks on the inside they are a lot more desirable. If they do they are just decorative pieces. It could be the difference between $60 or $80, and $20.

I love that you want to put the house back to it's original glory. Some of the fabrics are really pretty. If they are nice, and durable worn, they would still sell. Like the flowered on black dress used on the mask, and the red tiny polka dot on white. these are used if not elsewhere available, for recreating fifties etc dresses. I wondered too, about the "new" roof, I suppose that is why you are not so worried about the state of the ceilings where water got through. Also the settled and cracked wall area might even be a problem where water got into the soil right by the house, instead of being carried further off.

I haven’t seen any insulators in any of your videos of the house so far but I do know some insulators can bring in $10,000 just for the insulator because of the age style etc. I used to collect insulators and they come in some beautiful colors the blues and the greens are usually really nice and they are glass or they are made out of like a pottery type material. If you found any you need to get them appraised because some of them are extremely valuable. Good luck I have enjoyed your videos to the max. I’m sure you know what insulators are they use them on powerlines

for the walls I would just use spackel and tape or if you have the funds re-plaster those sections of wall that need it. I think you should do a clean out find all that is of value then sell it" as is" there may be a house flipper that can make it liveable and still make a profit look foreward to see how it all turns out stay well
