Thanx everyone! Yes, it's just myself and my husband doing fix-up and resells.
I posted another message a month ago about how to remove a cast iron tub. What worked really well, was wedging a 2x4 behind the linen closet's door frame at the top of the stairs. Then tying a rope through the drain hole of the tub and allowing some rope to wrap around the 2x4. Then releasing the rope little by little to allow the tub to slide down the stairs. This worked extremely well, and it was only the of us who did it! Thanx to everyone who contributed ideas on that one.
