It sounds to me like a job for a Sawzall, possibly with some hand cleanup afterward. Since you don't have a Sawzall, a good handsaw (note--that's _H_and, not _B_and--my eyes are getting bad enough that the words start to look alike), if you already have one, and chisels would be the way to go. If you don't have one, however, buying a _good_ handsaw unless you find one on ebay or in a barn or something, is going to cost you darned near as much as the Sawzall. Another option would be a bowsaw--with the right blade that can do the entire cut in 4 or 5 steps.
