removing drywall and when to stop
 
Opened a can of worms. Half the wall had tongue and groove board so I removed. Noticed that the drywall above was shimmed with 1/4" plywood so removing drywall. Now that I have got to the corners I find that the whole room has the 1/4" shims. Owner had also used unfaced insulation but no vapor barrier. Planned on just fixing the one wall but now wondering if I should try to fix the whole room. Afraid it is just going to get worse since I am not exactly a handyman. Any thoughts?

First, not quite understanding what "1/4&qot;" plywood and shims are. Why did you remove it to begin with? Was there a structural/damage issue to deal with?? Need a bit more info and maybe a pic or two...

BJ,
the '&qot' should be ", as in inch. Some programs change the " sign to ampersand .... why, I don't know. But I see it all the time.

Thanks Firehawk. That just shows my computer ignorance. I didn't know if there was some pertinent info I was missing in the "translation". Still trying to grasp the total picture of what's involved...
