The Walls; They Crumble

Ron and I have been having a hard time with our house. We have had absolutely no clue what we wanted to do. At first we just wanted a bathroom put in; so we started that. Then we just wanted the bedroom above it done; so we started that. Then our mold issue blew up and we thought of every plan under the sun in which to tear our house down and rebuild; but we don't have the money. We finally settled it this past Saturday night. We would gut the living room and the bed room above it. The bathroom/living room are directly under the bedroom. That is one half of the house. Then we would do the foyer and steps if we needed that done in order to deal with the living room. 

So on Sunday we decided that we were going to start the living room. We started on the wall with the double windows and tore out all the dry wall, the baseboards, and the window frames. No insulation under those walls. Then we moved onto the interior wall; two layers of drywall!! TWO! Why two?! Who needs two?! We finished those two walls in about 2 to 3 hours. He parked his truck outside the front windows, we opened the windows and threw the dry wall out of the windows as we went.
