A room in my house I didn’t know about!

Local: Quincy house pre-purchase
So I just discovered today that there’s a room in my house that I didn’t know about! It’s a storage room in the basement that is only accessible from the outside. I had seen the half-height door, but I knew where the door to my basement was, and I knew this wasn’t it, so I had just assumed it went into my neighbour’s basement. I was chatting with her today about some other stuff and she mentioned “your [i.e. my] little storage room” and I needed her to explain. Cool! It’s evidently not too dry, but it has a concrete floor and it’s reasonably sizable. It probably has almost as much usable storage space as the attic space over the garage, and has the huge advantage that I don’t need to climb a ladder to get to it. Score!

My neighbour has been trying to sell her place. If she’d moved out before mentioning that, I might well never have discovered what was behind that door.

Thanks for the warning, but the room doesn’t smell like blood.

Yet.

I'm going to get you a little sign that says "Beware of Troll" for that room... :)

That is so awesome. I would totally wind up in fantasy land for several hours if I found I room I didn't know about in my house, even if it was a damp basement storage room. :)

Yeah, plumtreeblossom wanted something like that really badly as a little child. (Actually, she wanted something like a storage shed or a treehouse where she could play house by herself, but I think this counts, too.) I’ve told her we can have tea parties in there if she likes. :-)

Heehee, if I were my child-self, you would have to pry me out of that little new storage room in your house. I'd be setting up mini-housekeeping with the trolls. :-)

Neat. Now you have a hard to find room in which to store the bodies.

Oh, it’s not that big!
