I showed a home that is over 100 years old today and still had knob and tube wiring!

This place was like a time capsule...the owner was the original owner and the home was built in 1901!!! He was born in the house and never moved! He inherited it from his parents and nothing...I mean nothing had been changed...not even the pictures! you could see the wall colour behind the pictures was different they had been hanging there so long...It was pretty cool. Not the most functional place for us modern types with no laundry room or anything. Each bedroom had its own little portable washing machine and spin dryer. Pretty interesting stuff. I have included a photo of some of the knob and tube wiring which was visible in the cellar...ya I said cellar;-)

There was some updating done to the wiring which you may note in the picture....the roof has 4 layers of shingles layered one over the other....better get a big bin if you tear that one apart
