One of the features we especially like in the house is the hardwood floors - oak and pecan - throughout.

Besides the floors, there are many other original wood features throughout the house. The library has sugar pine paneling and built-in, floor-to-ceiling bookshelves on three of the walls.

Nine-foot ceilings on the main floor provide a dramatic setting for original decorative features throughout the house.
In the family room, hand-hewn wooden beams complement the large, rock wall and wormy-pine paneling. According to Mrs. Rose, the beams were taken from the Officer's Club at Farragut Naval Station in northern Idaho.
Many of the original wall sconces installed by Mrs. Rose are in place throughout the house.
This is one of four original sconces still in the living room. These sconces were purchased by Mrs. Rose in 1931 from an antique shop in Ithaca, New York.
