Maybe it was a hiding hole for gold! Of course the gold was long gone. Now what!? Well being the ingenious fixer he is Greg made a styrofoam box and filled it with insulation.
I should also point out that this insulation was a whole roll he had previously stuffed in around the duct in the fruit cellar and we wondered where it all went-surprise in the gold hiding hole! He also removed some of the floor boards and made a handy little hose injector extension for a can of spray foam and foamed down into the wall and between the floor boards.
Little did he know some of the foam was coming right back outside. Looks like that will be another project for a future date! Oh joy. Never a dull moment at the Edwards house.Then he reassembled all the duct work and flooring so that no one even knows of the large secret hole. Can’t wait to see what a difference that makes this winter!
