Re: Tear It Down
I'm not a fan of old buildings either, but I understand why someone would try to salvage one. There are many reasons to work with an old structure over razing and building new, the first of which is that many historic provinces won't allow "new" construction, you can only rehab what is there AND it has to be done to period architecture, at least on the outside. Some folks love old structures and restoring them to their original glory. Old homes have a character to them, even when massively reconstructed, that new construction cannot simulate or replicate. The list goes on.
BTW, I'd rather have a 100 year old home than any of the garbage that now passes for housing.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
