Homeowner Finds ‘Window’ in Floor of 19th-Century Home After Lifting Carpet – Newsweek February 3, 2022

I saw this recently on Newsweek – Homeowner Finds ‘Window’ in Floor of 19th-Century Home After Lifting Carpet: https://www.newsweek.com/homeowner-find-window-floor-19th-century-home-lifting-carpet-1675808. Longer article.


A woman was shocked to uncover glass bricks beneath the carpet in her bathroom, after she ripped up the “gross” flooring in her new house.

Ashley snapped up the house in Scotland, which was extremely dated, at the beginning of 2021, and has been sharing her restoration journey to her TikTok page, @scottishvictorianhome.

The homeowner, whose social media bio says “Ashley’s 1880s Home Renovation,” found something unexpected in the bathroom, and we’re not talking about the horrible blue carpet.

She lifted up the flooring and found gorgeous, possibly original tiles, but also uncovered a bizarre “pavement [sidewalk] light.”
