He Started Digging in His Backyard and Made the Discovery of a Lifetime
You would never think about what could be beneath the ground in your backyard, and neither did this man – that was, until he started digging. You might find some rocks and stones buried within the dirt, or you may even find some dried-up chicken bones that had been buried years ago. However, this man found something that he didn’t expect, and it was his curiosity that got the best of him.
He had just bought a house for him in his family. But as nice as it was on the inside, the backyard wasn’t what he wanted. In spite of that, he decided to buy it because the deal was too good to pass up.
He started digging in his backyard, and he found what looked like a hatch. Why would someone want to keep something like that underground? It seemed rather perplexing to him. And so, he ran away with his curiosity once again.
The hatch was heavy, but he was able to pry it open with some tools that he had lying around. He could only guess what it was, but he was sure it had a purpose. It looked very old – probably several decades. And what he saw when he looked inside was more mysterious than he had realized.
He could see a spiral staircase that went down some stone tubing, and it looked like it was deep. He began to wonder if it was one of those fallout shelters that people used to build in their backyards many years ago.
He was able to remove the metal hatch that covered the staircase. But considering its weight, it was far from easy. He needed to decide what to do with it, because removing it was out of the question. Perhaps he could make it a special addition to his new home.
He started removing some of the surrounding dirt. He had some ideas about what he wanted to do with it. But more than that, he was curious about what was inside. His imagination ran wild, and he began to wonder what was in the minds of the people who built it.
He got the area ready for the construction of a concrete base, and the first step was setting up some metal rods that would act as a support system for the cement as it dried. He might be able to salvage the structure and make it a part of his home.
He had everything ready to start pouring concrete, and he hoped that maybe he will be able to make something out of this relic from the past. He might even be able find some use for it in the future, but he had no idea what.
He put down the first batch of concrete, which was to serve as a base for the opening that had been underground for all those years. But it would have to dry before he could put down the next part of what was going to be a new entrance.
The next phase of the concrete was easy, and he used one of his tools to smooth out the surface. It was a waiting game again, as it would take time for it to completely dry. And once it was ready, he would have a chance to see what was inside.
The entire surface was completely smoothed out. And now, it was just a matter of letting the concrete set in and completely cure. He was ready to see what was waiting inside this underground dungeon. What secrets would lie within?
The concrete base took some time to dry. And once he removed the outside supports, he was ready to make his way inside. The stairs looked intimidating, but he squeezed himself in so he could start moving through the shaft.
The stairs had been rusted over, but some dirt had piled up at the bottom. Yet in spite of its age, he was able to get down safely. Now, he needed to see what he could find down there. He contemplated a wealth of possibilities. What treasures were waiting for him?
It was pretty bare past the entryway, except for some shattered pieces of particle board and drywall. So, he made his way through what looked like a doorway – except there was no door.
The room looked bigger than it was, but he didn’t find much inside. Whoever built this thing took everything out before leaving it buried beneath the ground. But why did they put so much trouble into building a structure like this so they could forget about a short time later?
The whole room was like an underground dome. But while it may keep someone safe from harmful radiation, it wouldn’t offer much in the way of comfort. They might have decided that it would be better to be vaporized.
There appeared to be an outer layer that had been peeling off – most likely because of age. But it looked like the main structure was still pretty solid. Whoever built this thing, he knew what he was doing.
He did some digging, and he found a schematic lying around. In spite of its age, it looked like it held up pretty well. But while it was still readable, the document had turned yellow years ago. There was an entryway next to the main structure, and there was an exhaust vent that served as an air supply for the people who lived inside.
