What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? In order to cover up a "not so smooth" drywall section in the living room, I decided to put up 4' x 8' birch plywood panels of 3/4" thickness. They weigh a ton... each... I had to haul 4 panels from Home Depot. I created a grid on the wall and attached the panels to this grid, making sure everything was level and plumb. and I had to cut 2 inches off every single panel at the bottom!
