any surprises behind the curtian?

For those of you that have looked behind the walls in the basement what all have you found? Was there a lot of construction stuff, sawdust, extra this and that, rats next of wires etc.

Did you make access through the "electrical wiring" access panel, or did you taking down all of the panels? Also did you make an easier access door to the "mechanical room "?

Yes, lots of sawdust until I vacuumed it all. I had a minor leak in the plumbing down there and had to remove all the walls to fix it. As you suggest, I just made a sliding access door so I can see in there and even do some limited maintenance without removing the walls.

It was through the electrical access panel. I took that one off and the ones next to it to mount a brace for the outdoor TV. Also forgot to mention that the inverter was laying there. I thought that the two vents on the one panel would have had heater hoses attached but they didn't. Someday a good mod would be the sliding doors.

All the accessing I've done so far has shown everywhere to be clean and tidy.
