Steam Change-Out

Brian, Dragon and Henry knocked this one out yesterday. It was in a 1915 bungalow in Arlington, VA.

The old boiler was grossly oversized. There are only six radiators. Also the copper piping was leaking at several joints.

We had to shore up the rickety basement steps with 2x4 re-inforcement before we started. I once had the steps collapse on me as we were bringing in the boiler. A few bumps and bruises but no serious injury. Could have been much worse. Never again.
