Hello! I have a 1915 farm house that has had quite a mouse problem for a long time, judging from the number of old mouse traps under the house. :p
I am currently deciding upon gutting the plaster walls and going with drywall. I rather like the plaster but hate the mice. MY QUESTION IS THIS: If I take the plaster out, and insulate, will it help get rid of the rodents? :confused:
Just for kicks, what do all of you think about getting rid of the plaster in the first place? It is in fairly good shape, actually, with cracks but nothing horrible. The ceilings were not primed properly and so the paint continually peels but that is about it.
I have considered and reconsidered this to the point of total confusion and know that there are advantages and disadvantages to each path. What about insulation? There is none at this point.
I am getting ready to have $16,000 worth of painting done and this interior wall stuff is my next step.
I truly appreciate ANY thoughts.
