I have to admit that when I get a call to do a job like this one, I get excited. I was asked to “de-wallpaper, fix minor cosmetic issues (a few settlement cracks, some minor water damage), and paint the house” before they moved in. After taking a look at the house, I knew that it was a tremendous amount of work and a huge project to take on. The timing worked out that my crew would do the majority of this work while I was on vacation in Scotland, but I fully trusted them to get it done properly. Despite it taking a bit longer than expected (due to overlapping vacations) and a few small hiccups along the way, it went extremely well.
We removed paper from every wall (and some ceilings), removed old and unnecessary chair rails, repaired all of the plaster damage, and painted the ceilings, walls, trim, and doors. I could go on and on about the details of this project, but I’ll let the before and after photos speak for themselves below.
