Wood Walls – 3 Tips
There is just something about wood walls that everyone likes. Here in Austin, TX there were many houses built in the 1920-40′s that had wood walls without plaster. Often they were covered with muslin cloth then wallpapered over. Eventually they got drywalled(60’s&70’s mainly). Here’s some pictures of a 1930′s house my company remodeled recently were we found some beautiful old pine shiplap wood walls and decided to re-use them for the remodel.
This house turned out amazing and I think the character of these salvaged pine walls really connects with people who visit. If you are considering wood, I highly recommend it for your interior walls.
