Question about hidden compartments in stairs!
November 2, 2013 in Design Dilemma
My husband ripped up the carpet that had covered the stairs in our 1948 home, only to find "hidden" compartments in the 3rd step from the bottom! The step itself has hinges that open up to 2 areas of about 2' square. Does anyone know if this was a common thing for houses in that era? Our imaginations are going wild on what they could have been used for!
