    Scrap the drywall plans and do the walls in T&G also. That's what I did, all T&G no drywall hassles. Cept in the closets, and wish I would have hung T&G in them too.

    If it was up to me, Hogz, I would do the walls in hand hewn barn wood (I have a huge stack of it in my garage), all slabs that were cut with a bandmill off of hand hewn beams......long story but my buddy did it for a millionare who didn't want the rustic look!! Anyway, the boss wants to be able to paint it with country colors, and she's firm on that. You know what they say, if mum ain't happy, AIN'T NOONE HAPPY!

    I like Hog's idea too. We've done a few bathrooms that way and also my brother's family room half way up.
    VERY easy, and no mudding, taping, and sanding.
    Having said that, I will probably be pulling the T&G out of the stove room and redoing in DW. :p

    DAkSY, That room is fantastic! Close your eyes and you can imagine the smell of the wood. Lots of windows. Really nice.
    Wood stove and some good books, what a place to spend your winter in.
    What is the flooring?
