Shiplap walls and ceilings
Do you have them? Did you cover them up or keep them exposed?
This is what we found under everything (paneling, wallpaper) when gutting our 1954 home. I would like to keep the walls shiplap where there were no holes cut for electrical and insulation, and put sheetrock on the messed up walls. As for the ceilings, the shiplap isn't as tight as it used to be and stuff comes crumbling down from the attic. It is still very nice looking. I just don't know if it would be worth it to caulk it all (the ceiling)
I have seen several homes where the shiplap was painted and I absolutely love it. I have also seen rooms that had the shiplap and sheetrock and it's really pretty too.
Thanks for your advice!
