I want to remove the plaster walls on two walls in my living room. My question is, what is the best way to take down the plaster without destroying the plaster ceiling or the other remaining plaster walls? I'm removing the plaster so that I can insulate, rewire and replace the windows.

Second question. Are there any tricks to tying the new drywall into the existing plaster ceiling and walls?

Are you sure that the plaster will get damaged beyond repair when you install the insulation and electrical? Just because plaster is old doesn't mean you have to remove it. It breaks my heart to think that nowadays people actually think that drywall is superior to plaster. Drywall is (and always has been) a replacement for plaster. If you think you might have a chance to save your plaster it would be well worth the time and effort.
