a huge thanks goes out to our buddy, Will Spence. he made the drive down the previous weekend to help us take out all of the drywall/plaster. by the end of the weekend, almost all of it was down, including a couple of walls. more thanks goes out to our friends Matt and Bryant. they stopped by on sunday to chip in.
in our house, they did something kind of strange. they put up 1.5×8 foot strips of drywall, then a layer of plaster over the entire thing. on the negative side, it meant that nothing came off in clean sheets like drywall would. on the positive side, it also meant it was easier to demo than plaster on lathe.
