I have a wall that I want to knock out as part of a kitchen remodel. The wall is non load bearing, so its fine to take out. The question is, what's the best way to do it?
I imagine there's not a whole lot of finesse to it, but are there are some techniques to avoid wreaking the ceiling, floor and other connecting walls?
Also, the wall is lath-and-plaster and not the usual drywall. Will that affect things?
The wall has 1 electrical outlet in the lower corner, and no other electrical or plumbing runs through it.
My guess is it would go something like is:
- Cut power at breaker (duh)
- Remove plaster (how?)
- Remove electrical line.
- Remove wall frame (sawzal + pry bar?)
Is this about right?
