Are you glad you landmarked your house ?
Some neighbors and I have agreed that it is time to try to landmark our homes. We just started the journey, last night, and I am after a huge "Preservation High" I'm crashing a bit.
Ha anyone landmarked their house ? how was the process for you? I know that every district or region differs, but it cant be all that distinct and would love to hear about your stories.
The neighbors houses have original exterior surfaces: brick or clapboards. We have vinyl over clapboard and shingle. My preservation consultant said not to worry about the vinyl and that it would be OK to remove it even after we're landmarked. I I fear that I am letting some old horror stories get to me about people who landmarked their vinyl-clad historic home, only to be told they could never remove the vinyl to restore the original wood clapboards (the intelligent side of me says that this is preposterous, but historic review boards sometimes do make "unique" decisions.)
