Home Remodel – Demolition

Home Remodel – Demolition of the Interior

As we continue our journey, we begin the demolition of the home.  Demolition sounds destructive, but is actually a very delicate process.  It is labor intensive,  and demands attention to detail in order to preserve the integrity of the structure and provide a clean slate for the remodel.  Since this home is a complete renovation, our crew took several days to remove most of the interior, down to the bare walls. Due to some of the design features chosen by the home owners, some walls were completely removed or stripped to the studs. Watch the video tour of the home as the demolition was in progress.

There are many dangers to be aware of when remodeling a home.  Be sure to hire a professional if you are unsure of what steps need to be taken to ensure a safe and functional renovation.  Here is a link to learn more about some of the dangers when remodeling an older home.  http://thecraftsmanblog.com/dangers-hiding-in-your-old-house/
