Day Fifteen, Sixteen

I could not find any brick to replace the first floor wall (I will have to keep looking) so I decided to start on the second floor wall. It is very similar to the first floor except that I only need to do about half of it.

I started Stage one of removing the plaster. It took me about 5 hours. It was not so bad mostly because a large section of it had already been removed. Also it seemed to come off in bigger chunks. I don't know why.

After that, on Sunday, I started Stage two, removing the morter and grout. I have completed about 1/4 of the wall, so it is coming. My arms feel like jelly after 3 long days pounding brick. It was a good thing for the long 4th of July weekend because I got a lot of work done, but on the other hand, I am really tired and sore for this coming week. Oh well.

The second floor wall before any work has been done.

The wall after the plaster has been removed and some of the grout removed.
