Details, Details…Stairs and bookcase

In researching 1920’s houses, we found some great pictures at the Arts & Crafts Society website!  Here we see the built-in bookcase tucked under the staircase, like the one in our house! What a treasure.

And take a look at ours, while it’s a far cry from it’s original splendor we can imagine what it could like in the future.

These are the architectural details that we are striving to restore in making the CCA Leadership House not just a house, but a home.
