Congrats on your new buy and you commitment to doing the restoration (rennovation?) work yourself. I don't mean to be wise-guy, but what the heck is a carpenter gothic house?
Suggest you make your questions specific, or as specific as you can, as it will help others to help you with your building challanges that lie ahead.
Best wishes and look forward to offering whatever assistance I can.
