365 Photos Day 28
I love these doorknobs and backer plates. They’re on all our first floor interior doors.
When we built this house, we wanted it to look like an old house that’s been updated. Like one of our Grandma’s had left it to us, and we just remodeled it a bit.
I think the attention to the small details is what gives this new house character. I insisted on having push-button lightswitches on the first floor, because we had that in various rooms in the old house (the electrician said, “Can’t find any.” I said, “Give me an afternoon, the Internet, and my Visa.”).
We’ve heard from many people that our house looks like it’s been here for over a hundred years, which is exactly what we were aiming for.
