Removing a wall

Today as I was in the process of staging tools to drop into my crawlspace, I decided to take on a relatively small task of recaulking the tub. We've lived in the house a year, and the caulk job done was bad, but when you have fire hazards, leaky roofs and a 93 year old house sitting on cement blocks instead of a foundation, caulk seems low priority.

I've suspected the house of contributing to minor but frequent colds and coughs, but I've been focussed on bigger things like having ducts...
