Truman completely gutted the inside of the White House. It was mostly original since 1800. Margaret’s piano almost fell through the ceiling. They got to looking at it and the whole second floor could go at any moment. They lived at Blair House during the construction. They moved back in six months before his term was up. The original thought was to remove the ouside walls, too, but he made a good call and said no. Mainly because he wanted it done faster, but it wouldn’t have been good for the world to see the white house demolished and rebuilt. This way, nobody could see what was happening.
