Knocking thru a stud wall . . . STEP BY STEP!!

Postby Jord The Tiling God » Mon Sep 01, 2008 5:06 pm


So i've worked out that the stud wall i'm knocking thru is not weight baring, and its ok for me to plough through it...

Ive got my hammer itching to do some damage.....

But whats the best way of knocking this bad boy out, ensuring that i dont make any extra work when it comes to turning this toilet and bathroom, into a big bathroom...

Lehmans terms please ppl, im only a tiler :D

See the projects section and look at plasterboard wals and partitions. This project will show you how a stud wall is put together so you can see how best to take it apart. Remove all board first, use a saw more than the hammer when you have the plasterboard off and always be on the look out for cables and pipes. Cutting the timbers rather than hammering them out will cause less damage to the structure its fixed to.
