This is the home that my husband's grandparents originally built and lived in on our property, one day we would love to restore it if we can afford to.

Cathy that is so lovely with the vine growing all over it. I hope you can get to renovate it one day it deserves to be preserved. Too many of our historic buildings just get knocked down. I so much prefer our older buildings to the new modern ones. They all just look like square concrete boxes and are ugly. Modern developers have a lot to answer for. They really have no style or imagination.

Oh that definitely has potential. I love the vines and greenery around there. So peaceful. Let me know when you get it fixed up, we'll be all ready to move in with the flock LOL :)

Cathy your husbands grandparents house does definitely have potential. But you will soon not see the house for all of that vine. Hope you don't get any fires down there.. I hope you can one day restore the house that your husbands grandparents lived in...That would be so cool...

It's a beautiful house and I hope you can restore it!:fingerx:

A good start would be to start removing the greenery from the house. Although it does look good, it's only going to get worse and could cause additional damage. Nice to hear there are people out there willing to preserve their family history.

It is a cool house and restoring it would be fun!

Clearing all the vines off the house and from all around it to assess the state of the wood and prevent further decay would be my first step.

Want me to come and start on it for you? :D

Sounds like a great project, I am an old house lover. My husband and I have restored several of them, you never know what you might find inside the walls!:eek:

But the vines give it so much character. I wonder what the vines think about hair cuts? Wonderful house , Cathy. J A

How cool! The restoration would be a huge project but well worth it :)
