Sticky surprise

After a finished project there is always another one waiting. While seeking for the right materials for the upstairs atrium terrace, we wanted to get rid of the paneling covering the walls around the staircase and paint them white. The ceiling, again, will remain as it is.

When Pekka started pulling off the panels (which we thought would be attached only with nails), he made a discouraging discovery. In addition to the nails, the panels were glued to the wall as well. So with every panel coming off, there was a tenfold increase in the amount of work. Four walls, lots of panels and many, many litres of glue. So yes, this one will take some time to be finished.

Just how many hours are we looking at?
