When buying an older home (30+ years) there is a certain amount of relative oddities you should expect when you compare them to today’s building standards. Things that were trendy in 1986 might not be so trendy today, however with the proper vision you can turn those things into something really unique to call your own.
No matter how many times you see an old home before buying, you’ll always find fascinating things that either the builder or previous owner did that make you scratch your head. Here are a few from the house my wife and I just bought that made me go, “Why would they do that??”
None of these things are major issues with proper knowledge and planning. As we find similar oddities I’ll write more “Why Would They Do That?” posts.
