Renovation - Day 5
I started with the lath removal on the outside wall. It is taking longer than I thought. It involves removing a few of the the lath slats and then clearing out the blown-in insulation (and repeat, repeat, repeat). And as the insulation is big and fluffy it filled up the garbage can quickly so there were several trips to the dumpster. Once Damon got home we removed the small wall framing the shower/tub and removed the tub. To do that we needed to turn off the power and run an extension cord to set up lighting and have a power strip for the saw. I figured the tub would be difficult, but once it was removed from the drain pipe it came right out and as it was fiberglass it was nice and light too. Tomorrow its back to lath and insulation removal.
