During the mid-1930s, the most profound and modern alterations occurred to the interior of the house.
In the hall, a colonial-style staircase replaced an earlier one, and narrow oak flooring was applied over the original wide planks. One room on the second-floor shows evidence of original chair rail in the plaster. The doors appear to be original. Since no electric service existed, a central circuit box was installed in the basement, providing full electric service throughout the house. Telephone service was available as lines were installed on Friedensville Road.
The installation of a coal-burning furnace, later converted to fuel oil, heated hot water for cast iron radiators in every room.
Plumbing was retro-fitted from the basement to the second floor. Replacing an earlier wood-burning hearth, the kitchen was moderized twice: once in the 1930s and again in the 1950s.
A sunroom was added off the kitchen’s south wall, the floor concealing an ancient hand-dug, brick-lined well.
Two bathrooms were added at this time—a powder room off the kitchen on the first floor, and a full bathroom over the kitchen on the second.
The random-width flooring planks seen in most of the rooms were cut from nearby woodlands.
A pristine attic still features original floor planks, lath and plaster walls, and peg and beam roof construction.
Saw blade marks made by the sawmill are still visible as are the chiseled Roman numerals, indicating the placement of beams during construction.
