Knob and Tube

This is a great example of the history of a building. This homeowner designed and exposed a ceiling showing the structure of the floor above. The holes that are in the beam are from the original Knob and Tube electrical system. The holes tell a story of what was there in the past. Knob and tube has not been installed since the 30's. It should be remove or left un-powered in todays homes. Even when that is done there still is the mark that is left on the structure. I think that this was a neat detail and was happy to see this homeowner display it proudly.
