The best way to learn about historic houses is to look at them closely, and the most fun way to look at them closely is to do a puzzle showing a wonderful historic house! So, we made a unique and interesting collection of Historic House Puzzles for you to enjoy!
Clinging ivy lends a charming and romantic air to a historic house, while destroying it. Between the penetration of surfaces necessary to hang on a vertical surface and the moisture trapped against the surface by the leaves and vines, ivy is a disaster happening in slow motion. It is more quickly destructive to wood but will eventually damage masonry surfaces as well.
The Tudor Revival style of the early 20th century seem to be particularly attractive to ivy growers as shown here. If you must have ivy or other vining plants on your house, keep it on trelliswork held off the surface is somewhat. That is less destructive, but still not great for a house.
