The old furnace is cut loose and moved to the side. It took 5 guys to move it. I’m going to disassemble and cut it into pieces to get it out of the basement.
When the house was moved in 1941, they built the foundation and the basement, set the furnace in the hole, and moved the house over it. ;-[
Kind of like how I put a hot water heater in my heater closet in Southaven when I remodeled 20 years ago, then framed in and installed the closet door. I had to remove and replace half the door jam to get the new one in yesterday.
Fun times. NOT!!!!
