Renovating A Nearly 200-Year-Old Home In Mississippi

There are very few homes left in America that are over 150 years old, so any time someone buys a really old home they face many decisions about renovation.
Is the house going to be able to be brought up to code? Could the home be considered historic and therefore worthy of preserving at all costs? Or is the whole thing just waiting to be torn down so the lot can be used for a new build?
These were the dilemmas faced by Maria and Mac Thomas when they bought a house in Fayette, Mississippi that was built in 1825, an historic plantation home known as Laurietta.
From the outside the house looked like a total tear down, but inside they found Laurietta was a solid structure, so they decided to go with a gut renovation instead of destruction.
Three years and lots of hard work later they were able to transform that dilapidated old house into a thing of beauty once again.See Renovating A Historic Home In Mississippi here
