Question Removing Tile

I have a very old house with a shotty tile job in the kitchen. We want to remove the tile and have nice clean painted walls. What are the chances that the walls behind will be worth anything? If I remove the tiles will I have to go to the studs and put drywall up, or is there a good chance that the walls are "normal" behind there?

Only one way to answer that question, pick an out of the way spot & start diggin. Not meaning to be a wisenhammer, but you said it's an old house, so really there's no way of telling otherwise. Could be anything from plaster & lath to drywall to a mudbed under it.

If it's a mudbed, think tile, or else it's jackhammer and chisel & hammer to get back to painted walls.
