A few months ago my hubby was looking for the entrance to get down underneath the main floor bathroom as we'll be doing some renos and he needs to know what our options are. He couldn't find it anywhere. The bathroom isn't located in the original home but an addition that was put in some time later...we have no idea when. Therefore, you can't access it through the basement but we knew there HAD to be a way. There was a spongy spot in the dining room floor which is next to the bathroom so he decided to pull the carpet up in that area to access it. Nope!!! No entrance there. Instead, we found a secret. Shhh...don't tell anyone.
We found this cement safe built into the floor. We remembered at that point that somebody once told him that he had installed a safe in that room many years ago, we had forgotten all about that. To our surprise, we found it.
When he pulled back the carpet, this is what we first saw. Not too exciting lol. Just the carpet underlay haha!!
Step 2 - still quite boring! Hang on friends, the excitement is starting to build...
Drum roll please...there it is, the safe.
When he began to remove the top of the safe it was so exciting. What would we find? Money, jewels????? No...just an old tea towel. How disappointing, the story of my life LOL!! We figured it was placed there to keep dampness away.
As you can see from my favourite striped helper, it isn't that large. He's a big boy though.
The cement slab that had to be removed to access the safe is about 2 1/2 inches (6.35 cm) thick. It's heavy! You can see it on the right side of this photo.
This photo gives you a little better view of the depth of it.
Remember, it's a secret. Don't tell a soul!!
Thanks for visiting!
