But then true hisoricist construction would be well-nigh impossible to find in the U.S. today (with a few special exceptions, certainly, like the reconstruction of the City Tavern Philadelphia with fully historical designs and methods, or D.C.'s National Cathedral, for the same reason). You would be forced to look afield, especially in places like Thailand and Japan, where the wood in the shrines and temples are regularly replaced.
