1907 Remodel/Restore - What to do w/Interior walls
I am currently working on a 1907 home. We recently undid some remodels and then did some of our own. I now have a question regarding what to do with the interior walls. My carpenter obviously thinks it easier to drywall. I am not sure that would look right. What other options do I have if any besides beadboard or plaster that would look right. I am not "restoring" to it's true self, but I also do not want make it worse!Other rooms in the home have previously had some drywall added; but the main rooms I would like to be more authentic.
Also, what do I do with old wallpaper on some sort of cheesecloth with a million tacks? Wallpaper is not historical (already checked with local historian) and is eaten by bugs in some large areas. Want to put something else - plaster or wallpaper - what is easier and less costly but looks nice? Process? If I have to pull those tacks - how do I get them out?
