The old furnace....put into the house in 1946. It had a good life....but now instead of that big old thing sitting there, there is a nice new boiler less than half its size. This old thing was so heavy that they pryed it apart and then took a sledge hammer and broke it into pieces and carried it out in 5 gallon pails!
What a mess to clean up after they were done dragging it out, oil everywhere, on the cement floor, up the steps, across the landing, up more steps, and outside across the white snow that was steadily getting blacker from oil and soot.
Had to scrub everything 3 times to get it all up and have the floor etc. clean again.
Plus no heat for 5-1/2 days!
