Finished opening up most of the walls—eager as we were to determine what (if any) insulation was used for the interior and exterior walls.

As I was pulling off sheet rock in the "wash room" that's adjoined to the dining room, a mess of vermiculite started pouring from the walls. The odor was terrible.

The above is a shot of me stretching after a long night.
