House Hunting is always an adventure. We saw about 5 houses yesterday. None that really fit what we need or are looking for.
This specific house had a tiny basement you took a ladder to get down into. I already knew I didn't like this house, but who can resist climbing down into a dark, scary basement like this? My curiosity got the best of me.
It's hard to describe, but it was about the size of a small room. Along one side was a cinder block wall about four feet high. Over the lip of this wall, there was crawl space about three feet high that went under the whole house, which was long and narrow. It was filled with gravel and everything smelled like wet cat pee.
The funniest thing, depending on how look at it, was that this door was in one of the kids' rooms. I don't think there are many kids that could sleep with this entryway in the middle of their floor. I wouldn't have been able to. It's worse than closet monsters!
