Re: Article on the new/old fridge efficiency

That is awesome - and the concrete in our basement is painted that same yellow so it would go really well!

Re: Article on the new/old fridge efficiency

After having the water line in our fridge leak and ruin the floor, I have no desire to have a fridge with ice maker or water dispenser. I didn't even like the ice cubes our fridge made! I just buy bagged ice. I am an ice snob. :D So our fridge ruined our floor for nothing LOL. I have to agree smalln...

Re: Confession...

A test of will, maybe :lol: I tend to assume that when the price drops there is a REASON no one wants it... I don't know though. If you're serious and can afford to stay where you are while the most dangerous stuff is taken care of... 50,000 would cover a lot of work. eta - the listing price says 0?...

Re: Speaking of old schools

They have done Pitt, the main branch Carnegie library/music hall, and various other buildings in town. There was a church across from my high school which was BLACK when I went to school and someone posted a pic of that corner for some reason recently on FB and I was like I know that church, I know ...

Re: Speaking of old schools

Speaking of old schools and Indiana limestone, there's also this abandoned one within walking distance of the Cathedral of Learning Yinzer speaks of. The first school in the United States to cost over a million dollars to build, but now it's apparently too much money to maintain.(!!) They used to m...

Re: Speaking of old schools

Great building! Glad they are re-using it. We have a number of old schools turned apartments around here. Also a number of limestone buildings. :) I grew up knowing these buildings as BLACK because Pittsburgh was so dirty at one time. Most have now been scrubbed and sandblasted back to their origina...

1940s bathroom light free to good home

I don't know if there is any market for this - and I don't know where the RIGHT place is to put this on this board - but I have this little light fixture, if anyone wants it, it is yours for shipping, unless you are local in which case come pick it up. My uncle just did a bunch of work in my grandma...

Re: Vintage stove for a vintage house? Show me yours!

So jealous of all these wonderful stoves! :) We're locked into a particular size of stove so no huge vintage beauties for us. We have a mid-80s almond colored 4 burner gas deal... my husband hates it, can't say it bothers me. If we hold on to it long enough it will be cool some day, right? :lol:

Re: CSI:Ashpit

All right I whacked it with a hammer a few times and it opened. Nothing much inside. Dust, few chunks of mortar, and cold air. What the heck is this door even for? It's above my boiler, in the chimney the boiler used to vent into. Was it a clean out for cinders and soot from the boiler? Nothing inte...
