Renovating a 1920 bungalow style house and am confronted with a bit of a problem. During a prior renovation, drywall was installed over the existing plaster walls.

In doing this, the reveal around the window trim and baseboard trim went from a lovely 3/4 inch to next to nothing in some places.

Other than a few cracks in the drywall and the trim problem, it otherwise looks fine.

The question: How bad would it look to just stack more trim over the existing trim to create a better reveal? or should we suck it up and remove all the existing drywall and plaster and start from scratch?

As always, any thoughts/comments are greatly appreciated.

Perhaps a combination of both. Double up over the baseboard if it is flat but remove the casings and install fillers (extension jambs on the window frame edges with equal fillers behind the outside edges of the casings as well. This should even it all up.......MJH
