|Upstairs (left) and Basement stairs (right)|
Can you imagine a small room with 5 doors? Can you even guess which room of the Mansion meets this criteria? Oh, it also has 2 windows. The room is about 6' wide by 14' long and is the rear entrance, mud room. I know it sounds crazy, but it has doors to the basement, servant's stairs, kitchen, back porch, and the dining room. The two windows are above the basement staircase and above the back porch door. All of this needs painting, plaster, wallpaper, and flooring (plus wood strip and refinish). It will be brighter and more cheerful soon to meet the philosophy we have followed throughout the rest of the house.
