I have a 17 yr old home with Gambrel roof but the sides of the house are like an A Frame house.The walls inside, on both sides of the house are slanted. Their smaller at the top and larger at the bottom. I can't hang anything on the walls, so it is very plain and boring. Is there anything I can do with the walls, besides paint?? There are no windows on either side of the house.

how much is the difference or the slope? i would think its not that much. the only thing that comes to might is flat knee walls to be installed but you will lose surface area to the rooms.

hey porticus, I was afraid someone was going to tell me that. I think it is about 6-8 in difference. then I have to be concerned about the outlets. I was thinking about building a shelf about 36ins high, boxing it in and putting shelves inside for storage. I still, wouldn't get any wall use, but I could put pictures on the shelf. well thanks for the info.
