Your scared to rip down the plaster?

It's is messier than drywall, but there will still just be studs behind it that you can re-attach new drywall to. Likely over wood lath strips. The plaster will break off. The wood lath is excellent kindling.

p.s.

Save your lungs while removing the plaster:



Link to mask on Amazon - I've also seen this brand locally.This is the one I use.

Also; Highly recommended that you buy one of these filters for the shop vac your using:

I have one for my Ridgid and my ShopVac. They last a very very very long time and work very well for tiny dust particles.

ShopVac Cleanstream Filter


Ridgid Cleanstream Filter

They have them at HomeDepot for Ridgid.

Good idea on the mask, we've been using other masks but I don't think they are working that well. I just started taking the paint off of the door frames and at least the wood underneath it is nice. It appears to be pine, is that a common wood used in door frames in the 1920's?

On a side note, I guess breaking down some drywall knocked an already worn out pipe lose from under the sink...had to have the handyman come fix it this morning.

That's drywall. Anyone else notice it's on backwards?
