Started Gutting This Old Building

It is going to be a long journey, but we have started out and we do not plan on turning back. At the moment we are looking to find a reliable aircon servicing company that is willing to do something which does not really seem to be all that practical at first glance. Of course it is going to be tough to find some guy who will want to do what needs to be done at a price which I am going to be able to stand and so I am sort of thinking that I might have to look for a way to cut corners where we are able to do it.Obviously there are things you can try to skate by on and there are other things that you have to bite the bullet on and accept that they are going to be expensive. It is a very difficult process to balance out competing needs when there is a limited amount of money that you can spend on a project like this.

My brother in law and a couple of his cousins went with me this morning. We had sledge hammers and reciprocating saws. Of course gutting a building is fairly simple, but you have to take care that you do not go a bit too far in tearing up stuff. Of course it is relatively easy to tear something down. The hard part is trying to put it back together again. Obviously you start fresh with new drywall and all of that sort thing. The big problem with this thing is that the wiring needs to be done all over again. It was not done very well the first time and the contractor seems to have used a small gauge of wire which is not really safe in this case.
