But ripping out or irreversibly defacing critical original characteristics of the house just because they're "dated" is what gets to me. It makes me wonder: if you don't want those things, why did you buy that house and not something that was more to your taste?

I.E. bat insulation and spray foam. Or those that believe that the only " Good wood" is "Unpainted wood".
