That is actually where it was written. He just put a frame over it and cut out a piece of the wallpaper

Note: butt-ugly floor was probably installed in the 1930s. Then the 70s came along, and somebody added insult to injury by installing Barbie-style pink carpet on top of it. There's oak flooring there now, praises be!

Helped a friend redo a house from 1811. IIRC we found something like 15 layers of wallpaper. The oldest was handstamped blue flowers on white background.

Antlers, they're antlers. Cows, pronghorn antelopes, goats and other animals have horns - they don't fall off but keep growing. Deer, elk, moose etc have antlers and they do fall off at the end of the breeding season. The male has to grow a new set every year.

This is the original brick from the 1900's I believe.... We've also found wallpaper from 1930's. I'm hoping to find money stuffed in a wall 😂
