So excited
It's a loft space that was boarded up
Need to find a torch

I have dreams about this sort of thing

Ooo yes! Bound to be a secret passage leading to a sex dungeon!

The victorian Safe, what happened there, I missed the ending.
I saw one of these on a youtube old house clip.
They found lots of stashed old money, well out of date notes and they became really rich.

Obviously placemarking...

You do realise you will be murdered or something? Run downstairs and leave the house forever (vivid memories of a film with someone hiding in walls and loft - left me scarred)

Some friends bought a small place in France. We stayed there a night and they found a secret room.. in the attic.. It had been a priests house, so we found a pile of really massive candles ( like about 3 feet long) with big embellishments stuck to it and quite a lot of bottles of Wine ( sadly empty, there must have been a lot of communion going on) and an iron chest with mothy but very fancy white embossed embroidery sort of white tray cloths. And some old paperwork. It was fascinating. Can't wait to hear whats in yours!

It's a big old house but the previous owners converted the loft so not going to find anything old, it's not been boarded up for that long, there's building rubble in there.
Think they've just boarded up the roof void way before I would have.
It drops down about a meter and then there's about 2 metres of space, but then there's another drop and about a metre which would probably be unusable
Would be masses of storage space
Or a fantastic kids play area, all different levels

I had a few roof tiles fixed and I was looking out of the top velux and figured that the roof shape wasn't adding up and that there was a big dormer on the front that looked like there should be more floor space
It's the one room I haven't done anything with it

So no pirate treasure? sad

WhatTheNightBrings Fri 22-Feb-19 13:25:02

Aye.

This is the stuff of dreams. In my version there will be an old trunk full of beautiful clothes or perhaps a wedding dress... maybe war time medals ... However in reality I’m sure it will just be off cuts of old carpet and a Woman’s Weekly magazine from 1976

Cross post 🙄

DuckbilledSplatterPuff Fri 22-Feb-19 13:28:41

Ah. Mags from 1976 !

KumquatQuince Fri 22-Feb-19 13:29:33

This happened to our friends. They bought a house that had been a rental and was full of crap. When it got cleared out they went up in the loft and found a full loft conversion! They got a bargain with that house!

These threads crop up with surprising regularity...

Tawdrylocalbrouhaha Fri 22-Feb-19 13:31:35

I love these threads! Don't even care if any of it is true!

chocolateworshipper Fri 22-Feb-19 13:34:00

There wasn't an ironing board in there by any chance was there?
