As an avid fan of "This Old House" and other shows of that genre, I am often amazed at what restrictions are placed on homes in historic districts. I can understand not wanting to paint a federal style home shocking pink, but I often come away from such discussions with the idea that "I am paying out the wazoo for this house, so however I want to fix it up is my business." Of course, I don't live in a historic district...heck I don't even live in a house (mobile home). I can understand wanting to maintain historic architectural integrity, and in many cases I will even applaud it, but sometimes I get the feeling that many of those "enforcers" of historic integrity take things a bit too far.
