Old painted over wallpaper


What's the best way to remove layers of painted over wallpaper that has been put over more layers of paper and paint I'd love to have all these walls completely clean, but not sure if I have the strength and stamina to do it. The dining room (room 4 of 7 downstairs) has just about whipped me. Stripped one wall of paper. There are three single doors, a double french door, a wooden mantlel/fireplace and three bay windows. All these including the baseboards are natural stained 1913 woodwork.
I put two coats of primer and two coats of paint and need to go back and touch up some areas where the paint didn't cover heavy enough (not sure why, it's SW paint). However it is quite beautiful now, especially those clean plastered walls with fresh paint instead of wallpaper
