First things first, you must find out if the wall is a load-bearing wall by removing a small piece of the wall. If it is a load-bearing wall consult a professional to move forward with construction. When doing any sort of construction it is important to have air circulation. Open windows and run fans to help ventilate the room. Cover all of the furniture and openings with plastic to minimize dust in the working area.
Once you are done with preparation you are good to go. Use a pry bar to take down the wall piece by piece starting at the trim or door jams. You will come across nails, therefore use a reciprocating saw to cut through these and along the edges of the wall to ensure all the plaster is removed.
Once you are finished removing all of the chunks of plaster, remove all of the electrical boxes. Use wire nuts cap any lines. If you come across any pipes you will need to contact a plumber to reroute those. Finally, with only studs left use the reciprocating saw and sledgehammer to know out each stud.
Once the studs are removed use the pry bar to remove the last piece of wood across the floor. Click here to watch the step by step video on how to remove a wall.
