No—not THAT White House. This was merely a house where every square inch of the unfinished basement was painted white. By painted–I mean painted–not just a light dusting to sort of cover everything up. It was more like it had been dipped in paint–allowed to dry–and then dipped in paint again.
Now I have seen unfinished basements painted before, but this was closer to a work of art—-without a gap showing anywhere—-nothing bleeding through—-just clean crisp white. The Beatles would have been impressed.
The fact that it makes ancient wiring possibly more dangerous should be of no concern–being art and all. In the time it took to paint it all out, the electrician could have perhaps properly replaced the old Knob & Tube wiring.
As interesting looking as it was though–it still did not keep me from finding what it was covering up.
Now if I could have only found the stuff I didn’t find–wouldn’t that have been cool?
