One of the reasons I have always favored older ( and by old I ain't talking 10 years ), is because they truly are built very well. There was no plastic, or sheet rock, they crafted homes, they didn't just throw them up with some liquid glue. Ok ok, so as I am going around taking some 15 years old bath accessories, I happen to notice that when one of the former owner was upgrading and doing a bit of modernizing, they took the dreaded cheap route, when they needed to tear out a piece of wall to do some rewiring or to move a sink to another wall or what ever it was, they used sheetrock versus plaster to fill the wall back in!!!! Seriously!!!! Well at least it was sheet rock over drywall. Either way it was a bit if let down, its like replacing your Mercedes Transmission with a Kia transmission.
