Demolishing a room for a home improvement project is a lot easier with a tool commonly found in the shed: a square-nose shovel. It removes just about anything that a thin blade can get under. The handle provides plenty of leverage to pull up carpeting, tacks and all. If the blade is even a little bit sharp, old vinyl floor tile or linoleum lifts from the adhesive. Peel old quarter-round, wainscoting and crown molding off the walls and ceiling. Even crumbly old roof shingles--nails and all--peel up easily. Drywall doesn't have a chance. Best yet, you've already got a shovel handy for cleaning up after the demo is done.
