This antique is taking all our money to fix.need inspiration
Hi Everyone, I'm new to this forum and found it accidentally by "googling" I hate my house..which at many times lately, I do. We have a historical house circa 1832 that belonged to Clara Barton's relative (uncle or brother from what research shows). I fell in love with it's character and potential to be restored someday but, man, this old house is costing a fortune in necessary repairs so we never get to anything cosmetic. The roof is going, the wood siding is rotting in spots, all of the wide pine floors need refinishing and repair, some pine kitchen cabinets are falling apart, there's no insulation so we spent 30k on new windows (for apparently no reason I guess) and so still lose heat like crazy. It does have some nice character, though..
.I guess I just need some kind words to hang in there..while our bank account gets drained :) I will try t get some pictures up :)
