A nice steamer install (1950s or so)

I often will throw a picture up of something gross and hacked steamer, this one car my eye in a good way. Nice chunky 4 inch header. The house is not big, couple thousand feet if that

Fear not, the boiler stays. Just scoping out mini heat pump work

    I would not store stuff that close to a boiler with a 1950's gas train

    Hahaha! @mattmia2 - I had that same thought but was able to suppress my desire to post it!  Glad someone said it!!

    To be fair, my actual thought was “I can’t believe the crap people pile next to heating appliances!”

    Big 4" header for only 1 2" take off. It should work.

    Wonder if they got 24" to the water line?

    Ed I don’t think 24 was the rule back in the day.

    Matt and PC I don’t fully understand- seems like the gas goodies are inside the cabinet

    Normally there wasn't anything to control rollout in the 50's.
