She also hinted at the idea of renovating the hot tub but mentioned for now her intention is to turn the space into an indoor skatepark.

Online reactions

In response to her video, social media users presented a barrage of intriguing suggestions from restoring the space into a sunken living room, a nostalgia-sparking conversation pit to, notably, an indoor koi pond.

The house history

However, this revelation wasn’t all too exciting initially. During the house inspection, there were reports of the game room floors being “wavy”, which contributed to the inspection of the house’s support beams.

“We were told that at one point… there was an indoor swimming pool,…” @GlassyEm shared, revealing the house’s history.
