I’m right in the middle of redoing our upstairs bathroom and I am at a crossroads. My wife is determined that I install a double pedestal claw foot tub. The original tub was a marble/synthetic tub….heavy…but probably not as heavy as a iron claw foot.
How do I go about getting a 400lb tub up a flight of stairs? I’m assuming getting a load of strong floks. Also is there any general structural “rule of thumbs” regarding what weight joists will withstand? The house was built in 1928 and has 6 inch joists at roughly 12 inch spacings….any comments would be appreciated (do’s, don’ts, watch-outs!)
