To be real honest basements kinda creep me out. Basements that are finished and look like the rest of the house are fine, but unfinished, damp, spiderwebby ones - creepy! Let's start with that the door to this one is in what is supposed to be the master bedroom, although we're using it as an office. There's no lock on it - whammy number 2. There are no risers on the stairs, so it's open and if someone were below they could grab your ankle as you descended.
Just dusty and damp, really nothing wrong. This is my first night alone in the new place and I thought I should go down and make nice with the basement before it gets dark.
Behind the door is just the pressure tank for the well and some paint, nothing there.
Past the door and the water heater and furnace is just some shelves, and another door, no biggie, right?
Behind that old door are stairs leading up to the metal doors leading to outside. This one locks to keep people out, good thing.
Nothing scary down there after all. Tell me that at midnight, lol. Wish the electrical box wasn't down there, afraid if I lose power it will just stay off until morning - I have flashlights. :)
