1870 house going to be demolished. Is there a demand for old rads like this. There were also bunch of the normal looking cast ones. Threw a pic of some of the system. Think the logimax is like 5 or 6 years old.

    Is that a asbestos covered copper tank on the stand?

    That's certainly not 1870's craftsmanship. Those rads aren't from that time period, are they? Nice floor boards though.

    Southern Vermont . Long story about the knock down. Land was bought and is going to be converted to grass

    I will see what I can grab. Owners want to hire a company to salvage anything they want for a price

    Not sure. Only had a quick look when I was down there. Going today to save the water heater. Was told it could be a expensive unit. Only 3 years old. They want to save it for future use. Think it’s probably going to collect dust in a garage for a couple years

    The house has been redone numerous times through the years. Don’t think the floors are that old. I believe the originals are underneath
