By the time I reached the third bedroom, I textured the walls. So pleased with the result (and time savings), I also textured the hallway walls and will continue to use this technique. This still takes a great deal of time, but it hides a multitude of sins.
We seriously considered tearing down the shed, as it looked like a small breeze would topple it. After a great deal of repair work by my father, the installation of a new roof (my first time shingling), and a paint job, the shed looks great. Much larger than it appears, the 12 foot by 20 foot structure even has attic space.
