you need to start preserving it now, then repair a little at a time, so it won't fall down on you.
The vines probably need to go, but I think they hare like a two edged sword: On the one side, the dense greenery protects the structure from the elements, on the other side, it could harbor bugs and the roots can damage the foundation (and the vines could grow through gaps in the wood.)
But closing it in is probably the first step to preserve it.
Really cool to have that!
Pretty cool stuff Cathy. The two most important thing's to protect your project are the roof and foundation. If they are still functioning as intended, the rest of the house can be a wreck and still be saved...:)
Wow, that house is beautiful! It looks so stately, even as it falls to ruin.
The vines certainly add to the charm, but maybe once you redo the house some trellises with vines will bring back the feel :)
