Since an early age I've been creating, building and modifying the world in which we live. Raised by some master crafters, I've learned so many skills they all seem to have blended together into a meta-skill. I'm a creative problem solver and a college educated analyzer of businesses and systems. I bring a broad perspective having lived and worked in the most rural settings to the most modern of locals, and I'm at home everywhere I go.

Anatomy of a Demolition – (Part 1: Before and After)

This will be the first of many articles based on this particular act of destruction.  Before I embark on some beginning to end post of this demolition project, lets have a quick look at what the room looked like before we started to take it apart.  All the interior walls, external walls, and all cabinetry are being taken out.  What you see in the next ten photos will be removed.  Then we’ll do a set of before-and-after comparisons, cutting out the messy in-between transitional stages.

(Part 2)  Will explore setup to this job & the plan to contain all the dust from the demolition, trapping it in this apartment space.

 

Entering the apartment door, this is what you see looking into the kitchen. To your right is an open door frame into the living area. To your left is a small bathroom with a shower.

The kitchen, with the fridge pushed over in front of the oven. This pretty much it, a small kitchen space.

Looking bach through the kitchen at the apartment door. To your left in this picture is another open door frame into the living area.

Again we have the kitchen, only this time from the other side of the ugly yellow wall shown in the last photo. Also we see a bit of the back wall of the apartment.

More of the back wall, with an over all shot of the living area. You see the small closet to the right. This shot is from inside what would be the bedroom space.

Again the living area shot from the connecting door frame to the kitchen.

Turning clock-wise from the last photo, we see the length of the living area into a room and a walk-in closet area.

Behind the plastic flap is the apartment entrance.

A tighter shot of the walking closet area.

One more shot of the living area, and the wall that is soon to be gone.

In place of real biographical information (which requires time and effort that has yet to be expended) let me just offer this brief bit. College Educated Academic Type with a Combined Business Major specializing in Analyzing Things. Coupled with an Artistic Earth-Centered Country-Raised Kid with an Expansive-Green-Organic Adulthood while being many things including Heretic Ecentric and Risk-Taker. In there somewhere, you might find some insight into the cognitive being known as Lee Semanek.
