The T-house is one story duplex without a basement. Interior floors are softwood fir with linoleum in the kitchen and bathroom. This home is not only a good home for a small family or single person, but also a good real estate investment for someone looking to jump into property rentals.

Originally, the letter houses' interiors used sheetrock instead of the older lath and plaster method that was common until the late 1930's. The interiors of all the letter-houses had wood floors. The duplexes and the U and V houses (precuts) used softwood fir floors and the single-family homes used hardwood oak. The kitchens and bathrooms had real linoleum flooring (pressed cork processed with linseed oil). Interior decorative features include cornice details along with molding strips along the outside corners of walls. The interior doors on the older homes had two (or more) flat panels of solid wood surrounded by a border of thicker, molded solid wood (hollow core doors were a few decades away). Later doors typically had a single panel of wood inside of the thicker surround. Doorknobs were fairly close to today's standard but were slightly smaller. Brass was a common finish with plated chrome used inside of bathrooms.

These duplexes can accommodate two families comfortably and have separate entrances. For more information, call Encore Realty at 509-627-HOME(4663)
