Tight Squeeze

Dan FoleyDan Foley Posts: 1,129Member
Poppy and Nelvis had their hands full trying to get everything to fit in this tight mechanical closet. The proverbial 10 lbs of "stuff" in a 5 lb sack.

This was in a 115 year old brick rowhouse in Adams Morgan, DC.

    Looks like your guys had some real fun with that one.
    Great job!

    You can choose to do what you want, but you cannot choose the consequences.
  • Looks very nice! I pity your guys for the tight work space. That takes a lot of planning and foresight so as not to get boxed in.

    Well done.

    Good god @Dan Foley ! Everything tucked in a closet? Plus it's neat and serviceable? Have you spared no thought to the hacks in your neighborhood? How will they make a living when you're setting the bar so high? ;)

    There's something about a well thought out and clean installation that I can spend hours looking at that appeals to me, well done.


    You can have it good, fast or cheap. Pick two

    That turned out nice , alot going on there. There used to be a HeatingHelp member that had a shop in Adams Morgan I used to get Gorton vents from him , Ron I believe his name was. There are no shortages of tough mechanical situations in that area from my experience. Nice work.

    A Munchkin and a Smart tank were there previously. I do not have any before pics. The Munchkin was still running but the tank was leaking.
