I just got started today with the renovation of my 100 year old heritage home. Part of this includes the removal of the plaster walls. In trying to break through the wall without much success, I soon discovered that the lath and plaster was applied over a wall of 3" tongue and groove wood installed horizontally to the wall studs. I have never come across this yet and this my third heritage home I've owned where there were renos done. Anyone out there know why the original builder would have applied this layer of t&g lumber before applying the lath and plaster??? The outer side of the studs has rough cut 1"x6" lumber installed horizontally and then the original wood siding which is also applied horizontally. In my eyes it's a bit of overkill. I need to install drywall but am hesitant due to the potential wavy walls of 1"x3" t&g. Any suggestions anyone???
