Re: 1910 House

Beautiful home! We had to deal with some paneling in our place as well. I couldn't understand why anyone would go to the trouble of putting all that up when they could just simply fix whatever cracks were in the wall? Yeah, that is just simply called a "drywall lift" We ended up buying one from an o...

Re: The master (and only) bedroom...
