    WTF indeed. Every house in TT was built in the 70s, and they all had popcorn ceilings. If you're going to put money into remodeling one, that should be job one. And torchdown? It's a fucking rain forest up there.

    What's wrong with leaving popcorn ceilings? :

    Don't worry about me LS, I have finally hit that milestone in life where I am perfectly content to stay where the winters are 70-80 degrees. And rent an Air B&B for a month each winter to get my skiing fix in. Then back to the coast where the weather rocks.

    Well, if you truly leave them alone, nothing. But not biting the bullet when you decide to re-do any of the rooms is squandering your easiest opportunity to get rid of it.

    Plus popcorn + water damage = no bueno

    And then you're in a situation when, if you're going to renovate, you have to do the ceilings first.

    The world is perfect. Appreciate the details.

    A popcorn ceiling in your rumpus room is always a nice touch. And don't forget the lino floor in the kitchen and trash compactor

    We've looked at a few houses with glitter popcorn ceilings, which I think is kind of fabulous. Water damage makes it a lot less appealing though. Seems the best practice is to just cover it with 1/4" sheetrock, is that right?

    This house is so full of WTF. We've seen some other houses in this neighborhood (Bellingham Tweed Twenties), and they were all pretty funky, like everyone in the neighborhood was raised by wolves, then came into money in their teens and decided to build a house, but this one takes the cake.
    Those pictures smell of damp and mold, even through my computer screen.

    My last house was 70’s with asbestos popcorn ceilings.

    Had them dry walled over, no problem.

    I'm not sure what's considered best at this point, but that'll definitely work. Scraping it isn't all that difficult either, but it is time consuming. And you still need to mud it afterward. Plus, regular dumps won't take friable anymore.

    oh I didn't miss it!

    I like the agent's bullshit spiel. That's a vacant lot with a big pile of garbage on it.

    Is that water damage on the OSB ceiling accent panels?

    i've wet-sponged/ scraped popcorn off in a basement suite then just painted it flat white, its not a hardjob it wasnt too bad to look at but it wasnt much area to deal with, the ceiling is the last thing most people look at and its just a basement suite

    Wow, another winner. I didn't get past the flood number on that one: 6/10.

    I think the main reason to sheet rock is to avoid asbestos mitigation costs. That’s why I did it. But if no asbestos the spray and scrape looks fairly easy.

    Yeah if you pay someone to do it it'll cost a fortune, but there's nothing stopping you from doing it yourself. The issue really is finding a facility that'll take it.

    It was pretty small area that got stained with smoke above a gas fireplace, I'm not even sure why they did it cuz I would have just painted it, no idea if it had asbestos, didnt even think of it
