Happily, we unpacked most of the kitchen and the master bedroom over the course of a couple of weeks. Pretty much everything else is still in boxes, either in the basement or the back room upstairs.
Speaking of the basement, Dave made a discovery: a tiny door to a super-secret hiding space at the front of the house, in the basement.
And by hiding place, I mean place to throw random crap. Which the previous tenants apparently forgot about when they cleaned the place out:
So. We have inherited a large number of empty cardboard boxes, a jumble of wire, and some other… stuff? When we get that dumpster in the spring, I think the majority of this is going in there. Assuming we can get to it again, now that all the boxes are down there in front of the tiny door.
