The Options

I got off the phone today with Ed, a contractor friend of ours. We discussed the scraping and it turns out scraping enamel paint off of trim is like throwing Sauron's Ring into the Cracks of Doom; it's a nasty, dirty, hazardous job that will take a long time and somebody's got to do it. At least we don't have to deal with any Orcs. But Ed did give me some options:
  1. Set the house on fire and rebuild
  2. Try some non-toxic paint remover
  3. Rip out the old trim, and put in unpainted new trim
  4. Grin, bare it, and multiply how long we thought it would take to paint by four


I suppose the one good thing about all of this is that we can't seem to come to a decision about what color to paint the insides and maybe we'll have some idea once all the trim and walls have been prepped.
