[QUOTE=Coleman]you can't save every building just because its old. For one thing we would never reach energy efficiency targets if all our buildings were 200+ years old! That's not to even mention the costs of maintaining a building of that age.[/QUOTE]
That's not strictly true, you can insulate buildings (in a sympathetic/discrete way) and make alterations to make it more energy efficient without making many physical/structural changes. And restorations/maintenance can be done in a cost effective way if you're prepared to put in some of the work and to source good value materials and labor.
