Have a 1949 house in Victoria BC which has textured walls and coved ceilings. Seems the easiest way to get rid of the thickly textured walls is to put drywall over top, which will mess up the edge where the cove starts. Also, I know that coves are meant to be an asset but I prefer cleaner lines and since the exterior is more 60's, I would like to go with a more rectilinear look on the interior. Furthermore, despite having the ceiling cracks expertly repaired the cracks are still apparent and one or two have returned. What can I expect to find under the coves? Are they made with wide coved wood? or are they usually entirely plaster. Is it much trouble to demolish? Your thoughts are appreciated.
