Re: Drywall over lath?
Before hanging new drywall, check if the house has settled (floor is no longer level). If so, consider leveling/jacking the house to make things plumb and level; it will make your remodeling easier.
Be aware that jacking/leveling can damage drywall and plaster in other parts of the house.
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
