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.

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...:)
