Ever Curious About How to Expose a Brick Wall?

“This is a time lapse video of me exposing a brick wall in the office of my town house in Petworth. My 2 most important lessons learned… tarp, tarp, tarp. For every 5 minutes you spend tarping the room well, you will save an hour of clean up. Use duct tape to tape the tarp to your baseboards… I worried that this would damage the baseboards, but you are pulling down an entire wall of plaster which will require touch up anyway. The dust will get everywhere, so tarp the entire room and create a “bubble” if possible. Other lesson learned… get a good respirator. I used the paper dust masks the entire time and was coughing up dust for a few weeks after I was done.”
