Deconstruction - The Cherry on Top

One more little detail for those of you who have read my "Deconstruction" post: This house sits in a historic district, so there are strict rules for what can be done to the exterior of the building. I would have to obtain approval from the Powers That Be to stick a piece of plastic pipe through the roof and it would probably be denied because it would change the nature and character of the building. So the little cherry on top of the nice new PVC plastic plumbing stack is a two-foot section of the original iron pipe, joined in the attic and sticking through the roof in its original location, just like it has for the last 130 years or so. From the outside, it hasn't changed a bit.

Now the Powers That Be are happy, I am happy, everyone is happy.
