How To: Knock out a wall

Knock out a wall

Many homeowners wish that their master bedrooms were larger or perhaps their dining room and living room were one. You can often create larger living spaces in your home by removing non-weight bearing walls. It is always tempting to just start knocking things down but demolishing a wall can be tricky. But with a little planning, you will avoid a house full of dust, long waits to duplicate moldings and trim, and other unplanned construction expenses. The main problem with demolishing walls is controlling damage to other parts of the house. It is easy to damage adjacent walls, ceilings, and floors if you do not take certain precautions. Also, you should be concerned with whether or not the wall is a bearing wall, as well as saving moldings, doors, and trim for future projects. The key to solving all these problems is to do some planning and proceed with care.
