We purchased a 3 story 1905 Foursquare in Tacoma, WA. The house was "updated" probably in the late 70's stripping the historical integrity away from many of the rooms. The worst rooms are the bathrooms, and I'd like to restore them back to period finishings. (On the second floor)
I recently found a claw-foot tub, and pedestal sink set, in great shape for a great price. Seller says the tub is 400-500 lbs. I know that there had to be a iron tub in the house at some point, but it is not clear where the old tub originally was because I believe the floor plan has been modified.
How can I find out if the tub can be supported? Where do I start?
Thank you for any suggestions ahead of time!
