The interior of the original Firestation was two-thirds plaster, and one-third beadboard. In the renovation, much of the existing beadboard remains, with careful cleaning to reveal the many colors that exist, fresh coats of paint, or complete removal of paint to show the beautiful wood grain. The ceiling and stair enclosure on the First Floor are thick beadboard, with many coats of paint. The original colors are intact.
The Second Floor started with many colors, but will be painted a gleaming white. The beadboard will become more of a texture. This painted beadboard ceiling will contrast the stripped beadboard of the study.
