We really like where we are but we are just not sure it would be a worthy investment to restore this place. It is 100 years old and needs everything but a new well. Wiring, plumbing, a bathroom, septic, roof, foundation, a lot of the floors sag, walls cracked and the windows are awful. It needs a new oil heater and possible a new wood stove. Basically we would "gut" the place and start over. The price of the house is pretty good but land is this area is also pretty good. So we are tossing around the idea of building a new house instead. Good thing about restoring the farm we could a lot of the work ourselves, and live here as we worked. With building, we'd probably have to get a GC and rent a place till the house is finished. I just am not sure if we will wind up putting more $ into this house then if we built new. Anyone ever do this? Adive or opinions? Thanks!
