Up until last week, I figured I was long done with demolition and had moved on to more productive aspects of the renovation. But after a mason took a look at the gap-filled exterior brick wall in the corner of the kitchen, he told me I would need to strip the interior of the wall so that it can be repaired inside and out. So this week, I reluctantly ripped out this section of wall. Before I began, my contractor, Gregg, stopped by and covered the shiny, new floors with some lovely mauve paper. He taped the seams to prevent any dust from working its way under the paper and damaging the floor.
