Hopefully, the previous owner didn’t miss his old golden teeth. We get why they kept it in the safe. The best place for any precious metal is probably safe, but it’s certain that the new owners probably didn’t expect to find gold in the form of someone’s teeth inside the safe that was left behind.
As gross as it may be, they could have turned in the teeth and probably made a little money off of them.
Potential Was the Magic Word
Irwin knew that no matter what he found at the end of this journey, he would not lose out no matter what. He had discovered a space underneath the ground where he could escape to and turn into a haven if only he wanted. It was there all along. All it needed was some TLC, and it could quickly become the new favorite room in the house (or, better said, under the house). Irwin set his imagination free and began visualizing what he could do with his discovery.
This was the big secret that was hiding there all along. There was no need for WWII stories and no need for conspiracies about who dug the shelter and why. It was irrelevant information as Irwin had found his loot. The shelter beneath the ground could be whatever he wanted it to be, and the inviting entrance only made the place even more unique. It was there all along; Irwin just needed two things to realize this. He needed his friends, and he needed to open his eyes.
Irwin thought he knew everything there was to know about his house and still managed to be surprised by what he found. In this next article, you get a chance to learn about some of the oddest oddities people discovered in other people's homes or the new houses they have just moved into.
When visiting someone’s home for the first time, most everyone is curious to see what’s inside. What’s in a person’s home definitely shows who they are; the paint, furniture, overall decor, how clean the bathroom is, and even how the place smells.
When moving into a previously-owned place, the curiosity might not be the same. After all, the place is supposed to be cleared of any item of the former tenant. Well, "supposed" is a strong word. These next stories will leave you amazed at the peculiar things people found while visiting someone else’s house or in their brand new homes.
Reddit user Grahamtg21 said that, when they moved into their new house, they found a whopping $14,000 behind a toilet! What a housewarming gift. So why would there be $14,000 behind a toilet you might ask?
While it’s not totally clear, it seems that the owner just wanted an extra stash of emergency money and really didn’t want anyone to find it (as we doubt anyone would want to look for potential cash behind a toilet).
A Surprise Antique
How would you like to find a surprisingly valuable antique in your home? One woman found just that when she moved into her new place.
Reddit user Crisy_Apple_Pie confessed that, when she moved into her new place, she found an old piano left behind. But not just any old piano, this was truly an antique. In fact, after it was assessed, the piano was estimated (if it would have been in better condition) to be worth $10,000.
