She Ripped Up The Carpet And Found A Strange Passageway In Her Home

After you live in a home for a while, you start thinking that you know all of its secrets.

And who could blame you? That house holds your entire life, so it only makes sense that you’d know it like the back of your hand. Just ask this woman. When a friend of Imgur user madhats86 started ripping up the carpets in her house, she noticed something odd. Much to her surprise, she found a secret door.

Beneath the carpet in her home was a door that led to a secret room.

You can imagine her surprise when she lifted the handle to reveal a tiny staircase.

She traveled down the stairs, and when she turned around, she came across yet another surprise.

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251602_570718dd10b8c”, auid: “537251602” });

And that surprise came in the form of rows and rows of mason jars.

The previous owner apparently liked pickling foods.

It’s not as cool as buried treasure or anything, but it’s still kind of awesome.
