Before I started on this whole project, I was really banking on finding a HUGE sum of cash hidden in the walls to help me pay the expenses of the remodel. Or at least a treasure map.
This is what I have uncovered:
Wow! Corn Flakes were only 69 cents! Ohhhhh, those were the days....
I ended up putting back the newspaper in the wall, though I think it's original intent was insulation. I thought it'd be fun to link the modification to the date. I'll do the same with my remodel - add the sketches and planning, along with some newspaper articles.
