Could this house be rebuilt??, Yes IMO
"BUT" The things I didn't point out about this house is 1st.............It's a $h!t Hole!, The house was built late 1800's and the workmanship is atrocious !, Worst that I've ever seen in an old structure of this vintage, Rooms not damaged by the fire needed major attention, The car port was putting so much pressure on the end wall that the wall over time pushed in a good 5" at the top, Foundation needed major,major work.
One could say that back in the day that's just how they built things, I say non sense, Square is square, Level is level, Plumb is plumb.
On the other hand keep in mind - No skill saws, no air nailers........Everything done by hand !!
