    Oh, you mean you're unbiased realtor? :rolleyes: There's no way around it, if you want to
    restore or upgrade an old house and do it right, it involves a lot of work. Why do you think
    guys like me are ...

    Welcome Jordi:Purchasing a house is probably your best investment in your life. The only way
    you could invest better is to buy a winning lottery ticket; but then, there is no gurantee of a

    My house was built in 1915. It has an updated electrical panel. In my kitchen the only source
    of light is a ceiling fan with a chain to turn on the light. There is no light switch. The only

    My name is Jordan. I am 19 years old and live in a small boring town in the middle of no where
    (E.G., Kansas). A few months ago I purchased my first home. It was built in 1915 and is 1705

    Just by reading my reply you already know more than I did at 19. :p What you may have there is
    layers upon layers of old wall paper over wood-lath plaster. I've removed entire apartment's of
    the stuff...

    Hi Jordi,I've run into this a lot and it could be one of a few things. It may be old wall paper
    from the 1920's or 50's on top of plaster, it may be the paper surface of drywall, or it could
    be the su...

    I am in the process of remodeling my bathroom. Today I removed a tacky wallpaper border the
    previous owner had installed and discovered under it chipping paint. I've never dealt with
    chipping paint be...
