Deep depressing demo

The most frustrating part of this project was how much time it took to rip everything out. Demo is fun for like, ten minutes. Careful demo, demo that doesn’t destroy the neighboring rooms, is not fun. It’s prying nails out carefully with a crow bar, it’s using six different saws to extract a cabinet in one piece, it’s tapping out drywall with a hammer because the sledge will ruin the wall.

Here, I have ripped out the wall that holds the water hook ups, also known as the “wet wall”.

All of the shower wall is down, making progress on the drywall.
