Again, if this were a unique Cliff May design, one would hope for an immaculate restoration. . .

I suppose it would be possible to stabilize the roof while removing the material below it, then lower with jacks (or a helicopter?) the entire roof structure intact -- ANYthing is possible. On Market Street, here, the old Emporium store has been bought by a developer who is creating a new Bloomingdales in its place. The historic facade and a central dome have been preserved for incorporation into the new building fabric; the dome stands temporarily in place just above its final location, while the new building is built below. I'll bet everybody is holding his breath against a major earthquake before the dome is reunited with terra firma. . .!

My two cents

I say leave this house as is- as a warning to others regarding misplaced priorities, lack of neighborliness, and insensitive remodeling.

This one is too far gone, it's simply not practical to spend top dollar and attempt to restore it to half the previous size (unless you're rich and have nothing better to do).

Your valiant efforts would be better spent buying one of the other houses on the block, restoring it to a nice sheen, thereby protecting an existing property and creating an example of sucessful restoration for your neighbors, and raising the stock of the whole street!
