Steam Zoning?

I have a 100 year old house, with a 1997 steam boiler, 300,000 btu, House is about 3000 sq ft with no insulation yet.
my plans are to install hot water baseboards with a weil-mcclean ultra boiler. money is holding us back.
question is, can I zone control my steam system? also, radiators or steam only so we can not convert. wish I could.

Complete zoning is near impossible without total repiping and valves which would result in higher costs than converting to Hot water.

However thermostatic radiator valves (TRV's) powered (meaning it can be multiple radiators on one stat) or non-powered can be installed to control temps at individual rooms or radiators.

These work real well to just balance out a home.
Look at Honeywell Braukman, Danfoss and a few other that offer this this
