" Michele, I'm assuming you're limited by a window sill.  There are two options that come to mind: 1) keeping what you have and cover it with a grated box or 2) running the pipes parallel along the baseboard to the right/left of…"

Cast iron baseboard - low profile

Hi everyone! I am renovating my 1830 brick home and replacing old fin tube radiators with cast iron. I have one room on the upper floor that needs a lower profile cast iron baseboard.  I can't seem to locate any manufactures that have one - my maximum height is about 8 / 8 1/2 high. Anyone aware of any sources for this?  Many thanks in advance!! MicheleSee More

"I think that one of the Peel Away products is your best move for an uneven surface that is loaded with lead.  A neighbor of ours had a paint crew use that on their painted brick exterior, and it really looks good.  "

1830s Stone Home: removing paint from an interior (formerly exterior) 15' X 20' brick wall

Hi everyone - I recently purchased an 1830's eastern PA brick home. An addition was added around the 70s.  The former exterior brick wall is now an interior wall for my great room. It has been painted numerous times over the years. I would love to take the wall back to the original brick (but ok to leave some of the paint).  Sandblasting will damage the wall as the brick is pretty soft. Sodablasting won't get the paint off.  Any suggestions on what to do??  Many thanks in advance!See More
