Is it Possible for a House to be Held Together by Wallpaper?!??

So the new house just might hold the world record for "most consecutive layers of wallpaper on a single wall"!
Thursday night, Brian and I went to our new house for the first time as the owners. We were so excited to finally see the place completely empty and to get started on project #1, Wallpaper Removal.

We got the ol' steamer out and we both thought that maybe there would be about three layers of paper, tops. At least, that's what we were hoping. We weren't that lucky, SIX LAYERS later, we found the wall. Needless to say, we had to call in the reserves!
