Well, not really a dungeon, but it looks dungeon-like and that must count for something. It is actually the brick cavity underneath the front external stairs. I know - not exactly à la Fritzl, sorry to disappoint.
Jason dubbed it the “naughty” dungeon which amuses the boys greatly. Those kids have such rampant imaginations – I’ve been told that there is a pair of eyes which stare out from the bricks.

Under the Sow’s Ear is kind of spooky. Somehow knowing that the last owner of the house was a Funeral Director plays a big part to this vibe. And of course, Boo Radley’s house next door which is abandoned and boarded up doesn’t help (it gives me the creeps, especially when the crows circle Boo’s house).
My laundry is down under here. We have a spare room, toilet and Jason’s car is parked there too. There is also a heap of rubbish to clear from when we moved and the kitchen renovation.
The Sow’s Ear has great potential to be raised and built in underneath, but as I mentioned in a previous post it will fill with water during a rain storm. For now, we have sufficient space upstairs for our young family of five. Perhaps when the boys are older, we can re-visit this proposition.
