Memphis Kristin sends this photo of her awesome Memphis ranch – I love it, it’s perfect!
Here’s what she has to say:
We just purchased a 1953 “mini-ranch” in Memphis, TN and are in the slow process of bringing it back to some glory (it is in pretty great shape to begin with; one family owner from 1953-2007). The current beast is a MASSIVE metal antenna that is affixed to the chimney with an aluminum strap with a wire leading from said antenna grounding it to an old exhaust pipe on the roof. How do we safely remove this? It looks like the wire from the pipe leads to more wire at the back of the utility room where all the wiring for the phone/cable/etc seem to collect.
If you or any one you have known has ever done anything like this, let me know. I want it gone before winter even if I have to pay someone! And if you recommend hiring someone, who should do it? An electrician?
Due to the oak foliage of our huge backyard shadetree, it is difficult to see the antenna, but if you look closely at the chimney and above, you can see it on there like a star on a christmas tree!
Can anyone out there help? Thanks, Kristin! Can you tell me, though, do they really call these “mini-ranches” down in Memphis? I am curious….
