This one was a challenge, but considering the house is over 200 years old, and originally a single-room school house, that was to be expected. After several months of inspections, contractor meetings, and negotiations we made it to closing and my client now has a historic building to call home.
If you are looking to buy a historic building of your own, be prepared for surprises, and set-backs, but don’t let them discourage you.
