We recently received the Aspen/Pitkin County building permit for a duplex on Hyman Avenue in Aspen that will be gutted and remodeled. Here are some photos of the space during the demolition process. This is a great time for us to confirm dimensions of walls, wall thicknesses, see if there is room to raise the ceilings, etc.
The demolition process generally goes in this order:
1) Remove carpet, doors and trim
2) Remove all cabinetry and appliances
3) Remove all plumbing and electrical fixtures, bath and drapery accessories and hardware
4) Remove drywall at ceilings and walls that needs to be removed for new lighting or wiring, as well as flooring. Contractors generally remove all of the ceiling drywall if there are significant ceiling lighting changes.
We are excited to share more “in progress” photos of this project with you as we go. Stay tuned!
