Re: Building inspection and renovation cost estimate prior to purchasing old chalet

Some of us love old houses- our dates from Elizabethan times. It has a heart and a soul- and so much history. You can never ever 'build' that.
Yes and no. All houses start off new, after all - even the Elizabethan ones were modern and history-less when they were built.

Our house is old too, and I occasionally wonder what its first, second, third owners thought of it - was it too considered 'ugly and modern' at the time? If so, I am certainly grateful to whoever went ahead and built it anyway.
