This weights 300 lbs (297 to be exact), and it's much smaller.

Just asked the wife what the way bill said. 800 lbs. 6'/1.5'/1.5'. Fortunately the breeezeway was built the same way as the house and barn. Real 2by8" floor joist and 8by8" sills. Plus the stone foundation was repointed at some point in it's life. The guy wanted us to buy it's twin, but I don't know where to put it. Barn? After this I should be all set when it comes to heating the place. Yes, when I pipe this in I want to redo the boiler manifolds so I can pipe a coal boiler right up. Remove end caps, add connecting pipe, and refill system, done. One of the forum members said he would be interested. I'll be calling a specialty moving company to get this in. No way can the wife and I do it. Overkill, probably but I like it. Now for the cars. The IROCs been together for years and is a driver the SS not so much. The electronic QJET is junk and every single brakeline has to be replaced. Typical northeast car. Once I fix the house maybe I'll have time/money for the toys again. Thanks for the comments. Matt

Matt,
I think I would re-enforce the 2x8 structure under the 800lb. "gorilla". That's a lot of weight, plus the water inside. A post at each end will keep the "sags" out. It will make a difference if the radiator runs parallel to the floor joist. Perpendicular, against an outside wall, not so much.

Not trying to tell you how to install this, just a suggestion. By the way,"tis a thing of beauty"!

Cheers

Many of the buildings around here going back 100-200 years had the old rough cut full size lumber cut from white pine. good idea to reinforce it if the span is over 8-10'. I've seen 3-4 of them on ~14" centers crack under load. Might not bee too bad if it's really close to the wall were most of the shear load is close to the bearing point. You'll know if it feels a little bouncy!

I second that. Wouldn't hurt to reinforce a little. Mine is sitting on a reinforced concrete pad, it ain't going anywhere.
