The article is very good because it does hilight the way that our historic buildings were constructed and points out the craftspeople that were very skilled in building something to last forever. That extended from the masons and stonecarvers to the woodworkers, sash makers, plasterers, and many more artisans that lived in the communnity and were seeing and interacting with one another each day.
I am trained in these specialized skills and find it an educational process to explain to people that these materials that artisans have produced have lasted on their homes for 100 years and more. They have already proven their durability and that with a little help will continue to out out perform any modern material.
