    I want to remove popcorn mess from my ceilings, too... but the thought of the mess stops me. I watched in utube also with the water spray and scrape...
    I generally love doing home improvements generally and you have inspired me!

    Rado - your pics are encouraging me ( re- removing popcorn).
    Do you have plastic down on floor? Are you up and down a ladder? What is your scrapping tool?
    Thanks!

    No ladder for me :O at 6ft I reach the ceiling fine :) but I do have to lean mu head back :O, I am using a 6" wide putty knife I added a small stick to the handle so I do not have to look up so much ! Works OK, I may go to a 12" blade if I can find mine.or just get another one ! Bummer is the Previous owner must have spot painted so the is a pain, But the damp bumps do scrppe off , so finish sanding should make it smooth :) That is where the sander T Bird posted will come in handy :) As for protecting the floor not this trip lol my floor sucks ,but I will throw down a tarp when I attack it all ! But I am liking the results so far !
    I'll do more next week as the carpet installer is coming over tomorrow so want to keep the mess down !

    What a great morning......left the house about 7am....was about 40 deg at that time....no rain today. Got to spend the morning riding around with a buddy who has a large ranch not too far away. They run about 1000 head of cattle on the ranch....the cows are calfing right now....we drove around all morning counting newborns …..there were 12 this morning. Most are doing well...one had problems and died about an hour after birth....sad. The good news....the one cow had twins but had trouble nursing both....we separated the twins.....tied the hide of the dead calf on the separated twin and put that twin with the cow who lost her baby.....remarkable…..they are now like a matched pair......she took to that calf immediately.....both twins are doing well. We vaccinated the newborns....gave them vitamin shots and tagged their ears. While out on the ranch....saw 3 pair of eagles.....some deer and lots of cows. My buddy has been doing this all his life.....but for me.....being out there is like adult Disneyland....what a fantastic morning…..have a good day folks....enjoy life.

    Careful of that popcorn ceiling, might be Asbestos if done before 1975.
    Though, honestly, one time removal exposure using proper masks and few precautions, I;d have no issue with it.

    I was thinking this, but figured with rado heating and refridge experience he would be well versed with asbestos. If it were me, I would take my time and remove the sheetrock as gently as possible and not disturb the popcorn. Then just load into your ram and dispose. I believe it was the late seventies is when asbestos was banned. Being the jaded skeptic I am, I would doubt asbestos containing products weren't destroyed and discretey well into the eighties.
