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.

For more pictures of this house you can visit the website of Architect Hugh Jefferson Randolph, AIA.
