On Saturday my mother wants to remove a cast iron bathtub from my grandmothers house. She wants to restore it. The bathtub is on the 2nd floor of the house so we will have to get it off the front porch. We were hoping to bring it down the steps but are worried that because of the condition they are in and the weight of the tub someone will fall through them, so hopefully we can somehow get it off the porch. The house is being torn down in a couple of weeks so it doesn’t matter if there is any damage to doors, railings etc.
So my question is this. Does anyone know how much an antique cast iron bathtub would weigh approximately. The bathtub is about 6 feet long. And also any tips on how we’re going to move this thing other than having as many people as possible to lift it?
Thank you to anyone who can give me tips, I appreciate it!
Also would this be a good site to come back to for restoration tips on the cast iron bathtub?
