Ancient Boiler

If they ask me for a suggestion on the asbestos, I'd say to put on good masks, tear it down yourself, and hide it. Plenty of little, unused rooms in that old cellar. Some of which have dirt floors. Bury it and pour in concrete floors perhaps. Who would find out?

I don't see what all the fuss is about; isn't it long term exposure that's the killer? I guarantee that most people will NOT pay removal fees on their asbestos, most of them likely do it in secret and save big bucks. The man from the historical society suggested that he believes the furnace under the plastic is original, as opposed to the Ideal furnace. I'm sure it was coal-powered at one time. Would it even operate under all of that plastic? Seems dangerous to me. Have you guys seen a running furnace wrapped in plastic before?
Ummmm Yeah. See my original post about willfull negligence, improper disposal, etc.
