A Special Surprise at 1566 Sanchez!

Finding the ruins of an old fireplace under the home’s rear addition was pretty cool, but the biggest surprise was something tacked to the wall above the foundation near the front of the basement.  Located where there was little light before but which is now opened to the world (as the front of the house was opened up to make room for the garage door), we discovered the remnants of a sheet of paper…

I’ll zoom in so that you can see the top.

This is the kind of incredible find that makes you happy that this home is being reconstructed rather than demolished!
