Deconstruction

One rainy day this fall Matt decided to start taking out the back wall of our living room, so we could see out the windows of the small mudroom that had been added on the other side. This was a former exterior wall of the house, so we went through the following layers: wainscotting, drywall, concrete/asbestos shingles, tarpaper, clapboard, lath, and plaster. Now that's a demolition job!
And here is a time lapse of the disappearing plaster & lath, as seen from the living room.

Let there be light!
