Helen BS: Who first lived in your house/pad ? (29) RE: BS: Who first lived in your house/pad ? 07 Jun 21


Rapparee, a female owner of our old weatherboard house - now demolished - decided to knock out the back wall of the kitchen and extend it into the old lean-to laundry which was down a couple of steps. Unfortunately the wooden floorboards extending over that part were never shored up so it was like bouncing on a trampoline. She also took out a wall between the kitchen and sitting room but never bothered to put some boards over it so there was a big floor to ceiling gap and the wind used to come up from under the house and whistle through the room. When I say "she" I mean she probably got one of her inexpert home handyman-type friends to do it.

I know what the house used to be like in the '70's because I lived in it as a student.

Also, when we had the old garage demolished there was a pit in the middle of the floor, like in a mechanic's workshop. It was filled with concrete. I always wondered whether that was where the bodies were buried. The demolition guys just dug a bigger hole and buried the big block of concrete and covered it up so if there were bodies, they are still there under the slab of the new garage. LOL
