Craziest renovation finds
If you’re planning a home renovation, get ready for the unexpected. There’s a good chance you’ll not only have some construction challenges, but you may find some unexpected things you didn’t know were hiding in your home. Here are some of the craziest things found during a renovation, courtesy of reddit users.
A human foot
“I was helping a friend renovate her new house and discovered a human foot under the floorboards,” one user said. “The foot was all wired together so that the bones didn’t separate when it was moved. We called the cops and they traced the foot back to a local university.” They think the foot was used as a teaching tool for students, but said it certainly gave them a scare!
During a renovation, one reddit user found an old army footlocker which contained a machete from the Philippines, detailed war documents signed by General Patton, and dozens of military insignia. “The father of the guy who owned the locker was a dual citizen during World War I and served an auxiliary role in World War II as an engineer.”
