termites damage after tenting
 
4 Attachment(s)

i have a section of my house between the garage and the addition done years ago from another owner.
im going to replace all the wood damage, that goes without saying.
im good with the framing, have all the tools and small amount of knowledge.

ive moved walls, weight bearing and not before.
ive done some stucco and lots of drywall.

my one question is the studs along the walls that have stucco.
when i take out that studding im going to detach the stucco...i assume the only thing to do is take the stucco down and redo it...

it there a way around this?

here is my progress so far. i set up my jet air filter while i took down the ceiling. i found that they did not get in to the joist beams. they did make mud tunnels between the 2 layers of drywall. there were 2 layers because they had to meet the old plaster work for the addition. for some reason the termites liked getting between the layers. maybe they were planing to move further into the house. im going to setup support frames and then ill take the wall out and frame it back up.
