When we started looking at real estate, there was never any question that my husband and I would buy an old house. We didn't even bother looking at any that were built after 1950. We knew we wanted the style and craftsmanship of an old home. Now, a couple of years after buying a house that was built in 1912, I've learned a few lessons. Even though I've lived in older houses and buildings as a renter, actually owning an old house has its own challenges. Don't get me wrong, I adore my house and would buy it again in a second, but there are some quirky things about old houses that I wish I'd known to expect.
