I might want to remove a wall from my (all block construction) triplex. It's a short (about 5 foot) wall near an outside corner that originally made a small pantry.
1) How do I make sure this isn't a load-bearing wall before I knock it out?
2) How do I knock it out?
3) How do you clean up the place where the wall intersected the other wall, and make it look pretty afterward?
It looks like I would just get a sledgehammer and go at it, is that about right? I don't think there are any wires or pipes inside...
