Hi everyone. Last year my wife and I remodeled our century old house. We pulled out the plaster and lathe, insulated, and drywalled the entire upstairs. The ceiling is low and sloped on either side, and it took a significant amount of mud to get the edges at the ceiling and wall to look nice.
And unfortunately, those are the joints that are cracking. The is a balloon frame building and with the heavy snow we've taken this winter, I'm guessing that there is just enough movement in the house to cause these cracks to pop up. And since it's a structural issue, I don't really want to just plaster over the cracks as I'm guessing they'd just show up again next time we get a heavy snow or a strong wind.
Does anyone know of any tips or products that can give us a smooth paint-able surface, but remain flexible enough to deal with the movement in an old house?
