Re: TOH wants to know what you miss most about houses of the past
The House I grew up in was a old brick four flat in Chicago. Over the years we owned it we did a lot of remodeling . We occupied the entire second floor and the living room in the rear apartment had soft wood floors , every other room had hardwood . Eventually we decided to remedy the situation and over a weekend we installed a woodtile floor of Black Walnut Tiles. It had the aroma of walnut which reminded me of woodshop at Lane Tech . It had a warm delicious bouquet .
