tin walls and kitchen cabinets
Hello. My home was built in the 1800s and has tin walls in the kitchen. I know nothing about construction, so I don't know if there are studs behind the tin or if it is supported with some other material. I pulled a corner of the tin up, and it looks a little like lathe behind there. Currently, there are no upper cabinets on the walls. However, I would like to have some installed. Does anyone have experience with this sort of thing? Can cabinets be installed onto tin walls or must I take the tin down first? If it is, indeed, lathe instead of studs, is that sufficient for hanging cabinets, or does it need to be completely gutted? Thank you so much!
