Yes, it is possible. After basic installation install SP1 and 2005 sp1 update windows vista.
Question why VS 2005?
I would do a backup before installing 2005 and in case something fails restore without a need to deal with 2005 uninstallation hurtles.

We have a website that will likely not compile with the VS 2012. It was originally developed in VS 2005.

Can you install VS 2005 on a Windows 8.1 machine?

You probably could, I have never tried it.
Does it have to be Windows 7 or 8?
If you system runs Windows 7 or 8, you can create virtual PC with earlier OS and install VS 2005.
Another thing to consider changing code, to make it build on 2012. I think that would be the most beneficial approach.
