HVAC Worker Finds Secret Room While Renovating


We have shared some pretty bizarre stories over the past couple years here on REI2Day.  You might recall the one about the contractors who gutted the wrong house , the seller who wouldn’t move out after the closing or maybe even the one about the house that was built on the wrong lot.  Now we’ve come across one from Florida about a HVAC worker who was doing some renovations on an empty house when he discovered (while trying to discover where some duct-work led) a secret man cave in the attic – complete with carpet, electrical outlets, cable-tv jack and a makeshift urinal connected to the plumbing!  Pretty cool…if you’re 16.

“Upon further inspection, I found a piece of wall that didn’t look the same as the rest. I pushed on the wall revealing a secret room. Leading to the secret room was a carpeted walkway. When the secret rooms door was closed it didn’t even look like it was there,” the man wrote to Viral Hog, a video licensing company that re-hosted the clip on YouTube.
