Black painted plywood wall with many holes drilled around the screws Now That's Screwed Up

Here's something you don't see everyday and was quite the shock to discover working in this Waco, TX, building.

These are walls with 5/8" plywood over two layers of drywall. The plywood is screwed onto the drywall and wall studs...by screws which for the most part were not just going to unscrew.

To be sure the plywood stayed in place, the original contractors put 48 screws in each sheet.  48 SCREWS!

Removing 14 sheets of plywood with 48 screws in each sheet....

Of course there was a short time window to get things done.

After a time extension, the idea came up to bore holes with a drill attachment at each screw and detach the screws from the plywood, then deal with the drywall and screws separately.

Must say, after hundreds of holes, it actually worked.
