Removing some things!

Removed all the strips off walls and around doors

Removed all blinds that were mounted outside window sill area.
Will mount new ones inside window sill area.



Removed plain mirrors from bath walls/will also remove vanity lights.



Removed vinyl coverings on window sill area and found this mess.
I will caulk around all the windows and drywall this area and place
metal corners around all windows.

  1. Curious to see how this goes. In the process of trying to do a few things to ours. Ugh. I hate painting though!

  2. What do you fill the holes in with after you remove the strips from the walls? We are about to buy a trailer and need to renovate most rooms!

    1. According to what I read on Pinterest, you use the mesh drywall tape and run it down the crack, then mud it and sand it.

    2. It won't work if you don't put the tape. Mine cracked again when I did that, because mobile homes shift all the time.

  4. We removed our strips and taped and floated like you would regular drywall.

  6. I did the thing with mud in the gaps but I had two things happen with my 3/8" panels. First of all the panels were applied with cracks above the door and window edges. (This is a no-no when installing sheet rock) So I cracks kept reappearing every few years (I did this in 1993.) Secondly, there was a vinyl layer on the panels that bubbled in spots. If you go with taping joints I would recommend replacing the panels with 1/2" thick sheet rock.

  7. If I had it to do over, I would use 32" high paneling as wainscoting and then another panel to get to the ceiling. This solves the 9 foot ceiling problem.
