Re: What is this in-wall locking cabinet for?

Here is what ours looks like. It is in our narrow upstairs hallway so a bit tricky to photograph well...

Re: What is this in-wall locking cabinet for?

We have something similar in our upstairs hallway, and it is indeed the original fuse/junction box complete with cloth covered wires (no, they're not live). I don't have a picture but could get one tomorrow. Ours is only 1 door, and trimmed in the same wood as the rest of tbe upstairs doors. Also, f...

Re: Coping with a basement laundry

I have no great advice, but wanted to offer deep commiseration :| It is entirely our fault that the laundry is in the basement.
