Hehehe...that cold feel is just why I insisted that our repairs all be done in plaster with no drywall anywhere. Besides, they are much more insulating for sound, great for your bedroom if you have kids. They repair beautifully, again and again. No smashed drywall panels. Just don't ever nail into them. You'll microscopically shatter your plaster and make it weak. Always predrill and then use a screw to hang things. Or a picture rail is pretty.
Mention these things to your wife, maybe they'll help!
: I have remodled and moved into a wery well built house built in 1959 in california. Plenty of insulation in celing, just insulated the underside of the hardwood floors. Installed retrofit double pane windows throughout the house. The problem is the walls which are plaster. they were done right and are thick. The walls stay cold all the time. they are cold to the touch. Help, I'm ok with it but my wife wants to move.
