On Friday I came across a contractor sitting and smoking outside an empty house he was renovating. He had a sense of relief when I pulled up and walked to my car. He said that this house has some things going on that was so bad that he called his boss to pull him out of this job and assign him somewhere else. I walked to the back door with my package and he followed me there. He showed me the area where he just pulled the old flooring out. The house he is working on is set way back in the woods and very "Dark Shadows" looking. He says there were sounds coming out of the basement like children laughing and running. Even though it was the middle of the day the room was dark and eerie. I walked halfway into the room and saw the stairs leading down to the basement. It had a very cold draft coming from down there and I wasn't going to explore any further. I asked him what did he experience that made working here freak him out. For one, He would open the windows in the room he was working in and after stepping out for a few minutes the windows would be closed (this happened twice). But the part that put him over the edge was when he was finished tearing out the carpet in the basement, he lined the floors with a floor protecting sheet. As he was tearing out the carpet in the room above the basement, he ran downstairs when the sound of kids playing it caught his attention even though the radio was blasting in the room he was working in. No, no kids anywhere, but the paper sheets he laid down earlier were crumpled like someone ran over it. It was at this point he ran outside and called his boss as I drove up. Weird Eh?
