The renovation began on Thursday Sept. 21. Rented a 30yrd dumpster ($500) and hired three laborers ($400) for a full day of demo.
All the walls and the bedroom ceilings were covered with paneling which we wanted to remove. Unfortunately, not a single piece of salvageable sheet rock was found underneath.
Wall to wall to ceiling panels:
By the end of the first day, more than half the walls were gone.
And I had five stitches in my forehead thanks to a flying 2x4.
