how to tell if a wall has been removed
Hi - My house was built in 1900 in what I think is shingle style (closest I can match it to). The front door was replaced by a window at some point and entry was moved to the side of the house. We would like to replace the front door where it originally was and we have a photo of the outside (from a distance). The question now is that if you were to enter through that front door, you are not in a vestibule but right in the living room facing the side of the staircase. It's an awkward setup for furniture, but I think there may have been a wall or half wall dividing the entryway from the living room that was removed when the door was removed to make one large room. Is there any way to tell if a wall has been removed? I didn't think houses built in this era had open floor plans.
