But what happens when someone buys a home that’s been lived in before? Does it surrender its previous owner’s secrets with a breath of fresh air? Or does it hold on to them in the dark corners where nobody looks?
One Reddit user was forced to confront this question when he bought a previously owned home. It all began quite innocently one day when he decided to take a walk down the stairs into the basement. You won’t believe what he found there.

11. Closer Examination
Our intrepid Redditor had been in and out of the basement many times without noticing the plywood which covered much of one wall of his basement. But today, something caught his eye and he decided to have a closer examination. The plywood wasn’t quite secure to the wall, what lay behind it?
10. A Bit of Effort
The plywood wasn’t too tricky to remove. After a little work with a few tools, the board fell away from its position. What was behind it was astonishing – a second room, but did the alcove contain treasure or horror? Taking a moment to compose himself, our Redditor moved forward.
9. First Impressions
His first impressions were quite relieving. He found a small room stacked with boxes and other seeming junk. One unusual item caught his eye immediately, a locked safe. He tried to unlock it, but nothing doing. So he decided to see what he could learn from the rest of the boxes within the room. It was quite revealing.
