Thank you very much for your prompt reply! A few
questions have come up, how (if applicable) are you
dealing with your cold air vents? We knew we'd
have to remove and add/refit the molding, but we
have oil/forced hot air with various cold air return
vents. It looks like we'll have to cut and move
these vents - did you have a similar situation? Also,
could you clarify whether you had paneling already
(glued) to your walls, or were your walls just bare
horsehair plaster? The previous owners of our home
put eight foot high paneling on the ten foot high
walls and added a drop ceiling to save money on both
heating bills and paneling expense. We know if we
try to pull the paneling down it'll rip the horsehair
plaster off the wall, so we plan on purchasing cheap
(damaged) pieces of paneling, adding them to the
areas not currently paneled (i.e. the space between
the top of the current panels and the ceiling (and
probably in the area currently covered by the
molding), then we will add drywall over all that!
We really like your idea of adding the 2X3 metal
studs to the interior of the exterior walls, and
insulating. Are you going all out and completing
an entire remodel/renovation at one time or are
you, like us doing one room at a time? We,
unfortunately can not currently schedule more than
a couple of weeks at a time to do a lot of work,
thus we are seeking all the information now so that
we can plan as well as possible prior to starting.
Thanks again! Sincerely ASM & RSM
