Questions - refurbing 1923 house
First Q - the house has lathe and plaster. We had to repace the ceilings in several rooms because plaster fell down. We have been advised to remove all plaster and put in dry wall, but also heard just the opposite. Which should we do? Coved ceilings in the living room, I'm not sure how dry wall could replicate the cove.
Second Q - bathroom had crappy aluminum "tiles" which we removed. The wall behind is peeling down, many layers of paint - what is the best way to get this off? Scraping is getting us nowhere.
Last Q - those of you who have survived a long rehab project - what do you do when you just get discouraged? This is much harder than I thought - everything we fix reveals three more things that need fixing. How do you stay motivated?
