    Default Cover tongue and groove interior wall?

    Several of the rooms in the house are covered with tongue and groove 4" cedar, installed at a 45 degree angle. Probably very expensive when a previous owner had it installed, but it is not my cup of tea, and I want to cover it up.

    I was thinking of using 1/4" sheet rock. Any other suggestions? The ext. walls were insulated in the 90s so there is no other benefit to removing the cedar.

    Probably no way of getting around removing all the trim in the room to do this, right?

    I think that if you are going to re-drywall, you better off removing the cedar wall and the trims. When you do you may discover the original drywall, and it's up to you whether or not to remove the old drywall. I would, because it will give me a chance to see what's going on inside the walls, and to make sure that the new drywall (1/2" or thicker) will go on smoothly.
