    That said, our 1900 house had plaster walls which have all been replaced. Depended on the upkeep of the house, I bet there are plenty out there that still have plaster walls. There are indeed many advantages to drywall vs. plaster, but they certainly don't build them like they used to.
    I dislike the southwest look, but those houses are everywhere here. I really love the old houses. It is true that they do not build them like they used to.

    It's not that difficult. You'll need an electric power drill, cordless will do, and a special drill bit to drill holes into the brick or mortar between the bricks. You can get the drill bit and wall anchors to insert into the holes at any hardware store, or even Walmart. Just a little more effort than tapping a nail into drywall, but still a pretty easy job. The biggest impediment to having brick interior walls is the cost; much more expensive for material and labor to install than drywall. Get a price for both and then decide. Tile is also an option for bathroom walls and looks pretty slick.

    It doesn't sound so bad when you put it that way. I will compare the options. Thank you so much for the information.
