Remove Drywall installed over OSB


Does anyone have any tricks for removing drywall that is installed over OSB sheathing. I have about 200 sq ft that I need to removed and looking for an easy way to remove the drywall.

Easy?

How can we suggest anything if you can't tell us how the drywall is installed?
Is it nailed, is it screwed, is it glued, is it stapled?

What if there is no "easy" way then what?

keep prying it off with the crowbar...

Could set a skill saw at the depth of the drywall, but it really sucks when you hit a nail...

I don't get it!
If it isn't glued it should pry up and off easily. Then just pull the nails afterward.

How easy does it have to be for you to be able to do it?

There must be something more to it. OSB is not the best material to hammer drywall into. Like hammering on a trampoline

I don't know why it would be nailed over osb, but if the studs were hit, why would bounce.

I learned my lesson a long time ago about using a skill saw to remove drywall! Hehehe, never again inside a house.

And I only cut enough out of a wall to add a couple of outlets, maybe 9' x 14".
