Removing plaster - I have a stone schoolhouse I would like to renovate. In your experience, how difficult is it to remove plaster from stone (most of the interior is plastered)? And how efficient are stone buildings to heat and cool?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to Houzz Escape: Off to the South of France
The farmhouse, or mas, is a typical building seen all over the south. The light blue shutters are also a signature of the region.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to 7 Details for the Well-Dressed House
Keep shutters real, operable and a wonderful color. Don't use shutters that are too small and permanently nailed open. Bring them to life by having them look as if they've been touched by human hands.
This vernacular French country building illustrates not only the function of shutters in action but also various applications. The top floor uses double shutters at each window, while downstairs the squarish window is covered by only one shutter. Even the numerous doors include shutters.
