I've got to ask , how much do you want to dismantel ? Do you want to move it ? I can answer the second part of your guestion , No restoration project is going to be low cost. If you restore cheap , it's going to look cheap. Also, how historic is it. The historical society might have a say in this. I truly understand your reason for wanting to restore an old home , no new home compares to an old house. Please take your time and give it some thought and money. It will look better and have a better resale value. Ron J.
