So this weekend, in addition to a nice little jaunt out of the city, I helped a fellow blogger gut their house. Thanks for putting out the call, Ray.
Swung a crowbar for a while. Chucked some plaster out the window. I'm still sore. No worries, though.
One nice little bit: some computer science people rigged up a chute to catch debris from the second story. Ray got the idea to use contractor bags to dispose of debris to keep the dust down. Unfortunately, the ramp was not up to snuff and cracked in half. Structural design apparently isn't part of the coursework. I re-engineered the ramp and here I am testing the strength of my creation:
I could jump up and down on the middle of the new ramp without any problems.
