Ah, yes! My favourite Brad Pitt movie!
The story of two brothers coming of age in rural Montana in the in the 1920’s, and dealing with family pressures, and the calamity that is “life.”
Oh, wait. Sorry, but today’s title doesn’t refer to this 1992 Hollywood film, but rather a house I saw last week. I shot a video of the basement, and guess what? A river runs through it….
No, seriously. A river runs through it…
I’ve seen a lot of things in my days as an active real estate agent, but never something like this.
The video doesn’t do the situation justice.
There are two completely different levels to this basement, about 18-24 inches apart.
The owner of this house seems to have dug part of it out, for some unknown reason, and actually put down new concrete on the lower level!
In between, however, there is just a river of water, which seems to be collecting from the walls of the foundation, which are leaking heavily.
Is it possible that perhaps the owner dug the “trench” to accumulate water, to pump out through that tube and cottage cheese container? Was this done on purpose?
Or is it just somebody’s drunken attempt to gain two feet of ceiling height in a basement that you’d never use as living space anyways?
But this is what makes me love my job…
