Not me, Mom!
The spare bedroom. As you can see, there was a leak in the roof. This is the ancient wallpaper that was underneath the paneling.
Under the SIX layers of ancient paneling, was the horse hair plaster. Under the horse hair plaster was blown in insulation. Lots of it. Now you see it.
Now you don't.
The 2 x 6 by the stain mark needs to be replaced. It is rotted.
After it is re-insulated and re-sheet rocked, mom will put the paneling back up.
And paint the room.
Mom is not going to panel the eave. She is going to paint that white, like the ceiling. It will make the room look bigger.
Where can I hide?
