Good luck with the project. The house looks great and it sounds like you and your family can handle it. Those kids are getting a great gift.

Hey, it looks way do-able. This is a ~1810. Took 4 years.

Re: 1840's house worth remodeling?


I think originally the house was like yours, then porch rotted off. We put a smaller whatever-they-are-called porch roof just covering the door, vs the entire front over the termite condos, er, bricks. Didn't want to deny them water.

Then there were the barns...
Went without a hitch, well, except for the truss falling on my neighbors bucket truck, the tornadoes, the flood. But wtf, I lost it all anyway since Ala div laws suck, like the old Sonny and Cher show

Oh, BTW, you can get a sense of the *scale of the new barn if you compare it to the dinosaurs that were found one afternoon. Note the sheriff's car coming across the pasture.
*(Well its what it seemed like to me after going up and down those ladders for months.)
