This home was originally planned to be used as a one story home with all its quite small rooms on the ground floor and a center hallway from the front to the back of the house for air circulation.  To the left of the center hallway were a living room, dining room, kitchen (bathroom added  in one corner with doors to porch, hallway and kitchen so it was a very busy place) and an open back porch.   There were fireplaces back to back in the living and dining rooms.  Stairs to the unfinished 2nd floor went up from the kitchen.  To the right of that hallway were 3 bedrooms.  After World War II a major renovation combined some of the downstairs rooms into larger rooms and made use of the upstairs for 3 bedrooms.  An open staircase was also added since the former entrance to the attic was hidden in the wall.  (Information and plans by Helen Barnett in the Oxford house folder.)  1999 - Scott Santi made a 2 story addition for a family room, bedroom and bath (Architect: Bruce Goetzman).  This was the first change to the original footprint of the house.
