The house had other odd features as well. In the cramped space at the top of the basement stairs, there was a weird mini-bathroom complete with a toilet and pedestal sink. I could just imagine myself heading to the basement to do the laundry and coming upon some poor unfortunate, who had chosen the same moment to use the john. “Oh, so sorry!”
Upstairs, there was gyprock slapped crudely on top of cracking slat and plaster. In the master bedroom and the front hallway, hideous stucco had been applied with crudely with a trowel overtop of old wallpaper. A curved staircase to the third floor attic built overtop of an older set of stairs.
