When I saw this bedroom for the first time…
I pictured Laura and Mary Ingalls… nightcaps on and snuggled under heavy quilts.
This is Minnesota. It gets cold here in the winter, and this rehab project house had no heat in the upper level. Really. The kids who slept in these bedrooms (Hi, Flo & Arlyne!) were hearty souls.
The furnace in this home needed to be replaced anyway, so we asked the HVAC guys to add vents to the upstairs.
There are so many angles to the upstairs bedrooms that the new venting additions are barely noticeable.
Now it’s nice and toasty. Even after yesterday’s foot of snow.
UPDATE: If you’d like some insight into what life was like in this home, you should read comments from previous posts about this house. Some kids, grandkids, and even a great-grandchild of the original owners of this home have left some fun comments.
