I'd like to note that the owner's comment about being stymied by those "historical people" is ludicrous. While it's often convenient to blame someone else for one's own problems, the added step for a building permit on a house in a historic district is one small application, containing basically the same information as is required for a building permit. This application is then heard at one hearing of the Historic Zoning Commission.
In the case of this house, their application was heard in February, 2012. The applicant did not show up at the hearing, but it was approved in its entirety anyway, with the exception of a different (cheaper) roofing material being approved.
A year later, with work having barely progressed from that point, is it reasonable to blame a process that happened a year ago, at which everything asked for was approved? A rational person, I would imagine, would say not.
