It's painful to see a great old house converted with tons of drywall, open floor plan, granite or quartz, etc....
We have done a few of those. One being a Greene and Greene brother's. So far, as far as I know, all details are being kept. There will be updates because the owners are planning to line in it so things like recess lights in a certain area will be added like baths and laundry. I am going to suggest relocating toilets and other plumbing to a more modern design. In those days, the toilet were considered only something the wealth can afford, as well as indoor plumbing. So the toilet were often seen as soon so you open the door. We are not having that. Frame-less glass shower panels without an actual door will be added instead of the original small claw foot tub that only fit an 8 year old. Stuff like that will be changed out. Oh, HVAC too, so there's no need for a fan anymore.
