How to save these plaster walls
Let me preface this by saying that I love plaster walls and would prefer to save them unless it becomes too cost prohibitive.
My husband and I are in the process of buying a house from the 1870's. It has the most bulging and wavy walls that I have ever encountered. The walls themselves are solid and the keys seem to be tight. There are areas where the plaster is so built up that the baseboard is now embedded and flush with the walls. The waves do not look like patches and are present throughout the entire house.
So, how do we salvage this? Remove all of the baseboard and skim coat? Tear it down and start over?
