Note ID: JL115
Weather Conditions: Cloudy, mid 80s
Report Author: Joseph D. Lahendro
Report Date: 6/10/1999
Location: Mansion - First Floor - Stair Hall (E/R)
Work Type: Demolition
Notes: Video and digital photos of west wall in south stair where painted canvas finish is partially removed exposing an angled patched plaster band, 9 1/2" wide, rising from south to north. Appears to be evidence of a former stair run against this west wall. But extending the angle would place the end of the stair run past the infilled floor opening that is associated with a former stair. Could there have been a landing? Or is the patch related to a wainscot on the stair?

Note ID: JL113
Weather Conditions: Cloudy, mid 80s
Report Author: Joseph D. Lahendro
Report Date: 6/10/1999
Location: Mansion - Second Floor - Bath #1 (E/R)
Work Type: Demolition
Notes: Video and digital photos following removal of flooring, cabinetry, lower later ceiling and original ceiling. Evidence of prior ceramic tile floor demonstrated with same wood modifications as discussed above in note 100 (subfloor boards, ledgers, joist tops cut into inverted V). Most recent sheet vinyl flooring was installed on sleepers added to top of V-formed joists. North partition appears to be early 20th century with wire nails, gypsum baseboard (with patent date of 1912) for plaster finish at north stair. There is a 2' high X 3' long opening in this north wall infilled with plaster on metal lath. East partition wall is frame with wire nails and finished on bedroom side with plaster on metal lath, possibly contemporary with infilled opening in north wall. The original brick east wall was previously removed, with the top of the wall evident in the floor, broken end brick in the north wall, and steel lintels supporting the brick wall above. The south and west walls have evidence of two earlier wallpapers predating the existing wallpaper. The just removed ceiling was about 2 1/2' below the original ceiling which was at the underside of the ceiling joists. Between the lower ceiling and original ceiling all four walls have green painted plaster applied directly to the brick walls, with a wood crown molding. The original ceiling had hand split wood lath and green painted plaster.
