Mystery - found a hand-written date inside the wall....
I'm working on the house today and trying to finish rehabing my original windows in my 1925 Bungalow.
I removed the exterior window siding which revealed a clear view of a hand-written date on the interior window trim.
The date is 9-14-11....so, assuming that is Sept. 14, 1911. It looks like it is written in a blue grease pencil type of thing.
So, my question is, if my house -- according to the city-- was built in 1925, why am I finding this date hidden in the wall on the backside of the interior trim board?
Thanks for any insight into this!
