How’s interest going? I am 29 from NJ and just purchased my first home for me and my wife who is expecting our first child.

I bought a single family home built in 1933 from a family memeber so it came cheap but needs some work. Most of the house is plaster and I am not to familiar with it. All of the rooms ceilings seem to be board with a thin plaster coat over them and are peaking pretty bad. House also runs on oil so will be converting over after the winter

Congrats on the baby and the house. Before you start looking at plaster you want to look at plumbing and wiring that might need attention.
