P.S. you have one of those stairwells they used to build with hanging supports
make sure those stairs are well supported from underneath before taking that first step![/quote]
Hubby said he was going to put extra support under the stairs... I haven't seen anything yet, so I guess that's what he's doing in the morning before boiler arrival. We picked up 6 bags of coal today just to have some on hand since hubby will also have to build a coal bin this week. What's crazy is that our basement has a coal bin, but it's in the other room of the basement and the window that it appears the coal came through is located under the porch, which appears to be original. So, we are scratching our heads wondering how the coal came through that window... some things may always be a mystery. My hubby did find a few brass leaves in the coal bin today... more oddities from yesteryear.
Personally, I am ready for the beer drinking part of installation.
