There are several surfaces we see exposed in G1 today that suggest they were not intended to be exposed in the original design of G1. These surfaces include (and are not limited to) the QC floor, the HP floor, the walls of the AP, the Long Groove of the GG, the vault that forms the entrance to the HP, and the main entrance.
Of course, there is general agreement that G1's entire outer surface was originally covered with casing stones which are no longer there.
Also, we see evidence of chiseling around the portals at the south wall of the GG leading to the Antechamber from the Great Step, the QC niche, the south wall of the Antechamber that leads to the KC, the bezel at the bottom of the DP leading to the SC. These all strongly suggest that something was installed in those portals. Traditional thought would have us believe those portals were plugged with blocks of stone, but this is speculation (just as the existence of the Prism Stone pure speculation with no physical evidence supporting it). The inverted "V" chisel pattern does not support making room for a human to crawl past a blocking stone. Nor does it support the notion that a pry bar was used to remove a heavy plug stone -- applying pry bars to the SIDE of a blocking stone would be far more effective in removing such stones since prying from above only adds to gravity holding the block in place.
The southern shaft portal of the KC is very hacked up compared to the northern shaft portal. I don't know if that is due to more recent investigators attempting to widen that shaft in order to facilitate exploration of that shaft or if it was originally shaped like that, but if the latter, then it suggest something was mounted in that portal that has since been removed.
Likewise, in my opinion, the odd patterns of stone formations we see in the SC supports the notion that other valuable materials were originally mounted over those geologic formations but have since been removed.
Whether the KC also had an original floor (and ceiling, etc.) over the exposed surface we see there today is speculation and depends on the "function" the original builders had in mind for that chamber.
How can any of us ever know, when all we can do is think?
