Demo is simultaneously the best and the worst. It's the best because you finally feel like you are accomplishing something and the worst because it can take forever when you are doing it yourself. Paul and his brother have been doing most of the demo so far, which is hopefully saving us some money. In general, our goal is to do as much of the work on this house as possible that we can do ourselves. Demo is hard work, but it doesn't necessarily take a ton of skill. I would love to be over there swinging a sledgehammer myself, but renovating a house with two very young children means we take turns.
So far, we (and by we I mean Paul, ha!) has demo'd the majority of the kitchen and the upstairs hall bathroom. There was a ton of rot in the the bathroom tub walls, which was to be expected because there were holes (no joke) in the shower tile. This weekend we are hoping to get more of the windows in the house demo'd so we can move onto the roof and getting the new windows installed.
