    Default shiplap wall renew

    My house has wall paper over cheese cloth that needs replacing. We want to do something different. What can we do to our walls to cover them so that our trim does not have to be replaced. Sheetrock would not leave much reveil on the facings.

    Default Re: shiplap wall renew

    Common to houses in my neighborhood was to apply 1/4" drywall over the shiplap, gauze and wallpaper.

    If at all possible, remove the ship lap which will allow you to re-wire, re-plumb, and insulate
