Le Cotage Conversion- Tear Down the Walls

Okay, we're actually only tearing down one wall to make an open floor plan. This wall is not like modern dry-wall. It's a fiber-board covered with a heavy plaster which actually contains a tiny aggregate. (Tiny rocks) It is heavy stuff and much more difficult to tear out.

When the wall was covered, I was hitting directly on this thing and not getting anywhere. So I hammered around it and uncovered this thiNG. What the heck is it, you ask? That's exactly what I said. It is an illegal junction. What could this little box have possibly done that is illegal? It's hiding behind a wall. That is a no-no. So, according to my general, in terms of electrical wiring and plumbing, this house will be like new construction.

Hard, dusty work! The studs can't come out until Jake puts a new beam across the span. Can't wait!!!
