How difficult and costly is it to renovate an authentic adobe home?
Working with adobe is a lot like working with brick. Making repairs or alterations to an adobe wall requires expertise with adobe brick and mortar. It would be a good idea for you to locate a remodeling professional familiar with adobe for consultation. The projects you describe are certainly doable, but if you are not familiar with adobe I would suggest you hire a qualified contractor.
