Gonna be whenever I have time and money (both of which I am low on right now)!

There's no urgency to get it done, the forced-air system will stay in place until I am ready to connect to the boiler. Lots to do before that happens. :shock:

Working backwards towards the boiler, kitchen is a one story addition with a slab floor. I'm going to box in the pipes along the baseboard. Adding a kickspace heater under the sink cabinet.

I now own this bad boy, American Radiator 3 pass and the price was right...free! There's another one like it on the way. Took four of us to lift it into the truck.

So far I am very satisfied with this little project. Under the kitchen sink I plumbed in a small kickspace heater as well.

The kitchen is a one story addition on a slab. If I had known then what I know now I would have pre-plumbed it for Hydronic heat, or done radiant in the slab. Getting the pipes to the radiator was an adventure.
