should we build new or restore old house
I live in NE Texas and we purchased a 1920, 1390 sq.ft. house for $1,000.00. The cost to move it to our land will be $10,000.00. We have houseplans drawn up to add on about 1200 more sq. ft. We can't do anything further until we sell our current home, but now are pondering whether to go thru with restoration or build new using the salvaged parts of the house. This will be our forever house, and we want as energy efficient as possible. The existing house is in fairly good shape, but needs lots of insulation. Any suggestions?
