Agree. I live in a house where the original structure dates back to
1893. It's a _nice_ house, but in no way does it resemble the house
that it was in 1900. The kitchen, dining, and both offices are
add-ons for example and central heating has long since replaced the
coal furnace ( although the coal chute door is still there). Who would
want to live in a farmhouse that old with no enhancements?
