Here's a picture from when we first moved in. All the trim is painted, and there's at least 5 layers of wallpaper that have been painting. The hallway is only 30" wide, I'm sure that less than code these days.
Here's a shot of the living room doorway. We took the wallpaper off over 2 years ago. The walls have never been painted. And there's lots of cracks. We used a drywall compound with fibre called concrete fill. Then used hot mud over that to smooth is all out. Plaster washers hold the loose plaster in place.
This is when I just started this wall, I've almost skim coated the whole wall now. It was in rough shape, I think from the previous owner breaking out the bedroom walls with a sledgehammer.
Here looking down the hallway towards the front door. The foyer is all primed now, there's still a little bit of filling left to do. I want to smooth out the one wall a little more too.
We added spray foam around the front door. Not there was much of a gap, they used to fit those doors in tight. We still have a lot of work to do, sanding trim, stripping the floor, painting etc. Hopefully it won't take another 2 years to finish it.
