Depends on how old you are. There could be a chance that you might be covered in animal dung and blood or perhaps a nice lime rendering. Would your structure hold up to those treatments?.
Talking about grants for old and historic buildings. Our local council had the old Guildhall 'refurbished' by a specialist firm. At the time, quite a lot of roofing lead was being stolen in the area, so on the ridges they placed coping stones instead of lead, as a temporary measure. The coping was painted black so as to blend-in, on the hope that no one would notice. Eighteen years down the line, the coping stones are still in-situ. Now thats called blending in the old with the new. Who looks up anyway?.
once the money runs out they be asking for more or try to get the joe public to contribute another couple million then go bak to the government and ask for tax payers money then ask joe public then ask the lottery people again and the cycle goes on and on etc.
