Terrific house - how lucky you two are! I couldn't see the kitchen, but Thermodore is among the top line of appliances - like really top line - so apparently they spent money on quality stuff. Lucky again! I love the bathroom - looks terrific. I have to agree - probably not original, but a darn nice adaptation which, in 1891 - you probably wouldn't enjoy an original bathroom or kitchen! Things have to change to stay alive.
The baseboard heat is a great heat. I've had it all my life. It isn't however, a "damp" heat at all - in fact, it is very drying. A forced air furnace often has a humidifier associated with it - but radiant heat puts out no humidity. You'll need to get some humidifiers to keep your woodwork and furniture in good shape, as well as enjoy a more comfortable heat/humidity level in the dead of winter. We run a humidifier night and day in the winter (it's a big one) and it cranks thru about 5 gallons of water in about 48 hrs. We don't have a humid house, it's just that winters here are very dry, and the heat is dry, and well, we're in an old house which is a bit drafty!! You'll figure out what works best for you - it takes time and experience! Good luck and congratulations!
