A lot of the walls in my 1930 3 bed semi are heavily textured, like roughly spread icing on a cake. Bit difficult to describe but the peaks and troughs are as much as 1/4". Would it be possible to plaster over this? I am thinking you can knock off the peaks and then replaster over.
However I dont want so much plaster the architraves, skirting boards etc dont look silly. Also I am going to strip all the wood in the house and stain if this makes a difference as most of the wood is badly fitted and could do with re fitting after stripping.
I realise stripping off the existing plaster would open up a huge can of worms especially on the lath and plaster walls but I am right at the start of a major renovation so its all getting ruined anyway (rewire, new heating, home network etc.
